Of all the varieties of shop in 19th century Britain, the grocer’s store had the largest turnover of stock. They held a huge range of goods, from staple foodstuffs such as milk, butter, sugar, flour and bread, to more luxurious produce such as marmalades and exotic fruit. This one even sold lobster. Grocers also sold household cleaning supplies such as soap, washing powder and polish. A grocer would order his stock according to demand and if he didn’t have something that a customer asked for he would do his best to order it specially.
