Mr Dodson said he has seen more of his customers using his shop for daily essentials as supermarket prices continue to rise.

He added: "I think most people use Mom's Cash and Carry for the low prices, but it's our great customer service and range of products which grows daily.

Paul Higgs, owner of the Mini Market inside the old Barclay's bank building on Hall Quay, said while prices of goods go up and down, he is able to keep his prices consistently low as he buys rejected items from major supermarkets.

From packaging with spelling mistakes to tins being relabelled due to damage in transport, the Mini Market sells store cupboard goods which can be seen in bigger chains but at much lower prices.
