Of all shops in 19th century Britain the Grocer’s store had the largest turnover of stock. Grocer’s stocked a range of goods from staple food stuffs like milk, butter, sugar, flour and bread to more luxurious produce such as vegetables, chocolate and tinned food. They also sold household cleaning supplies like soap, washing powder and polish. A grocer knew his regular customers by name and would try his best to obtain any special supplies. He would fill his windows with seasonal food and interesting produce to tempt potential customers and the displays would change constantly throughout the day.
