Discount Call Shop.Opened just eight weeks ago this unique little shop situated on Spital Hill sells almost everything for a pound or cheaper. “We are trying to purchase things to sell cheaper to the people of Burngreave,” explains the proprietor Ahmed Mire. Looking around I could see his shelves were finely stocked with food items, and, towards the rear, toiletries; kitchen hardware and plastics; hammers; utensils and toothbrushes. Explaining that they also sold international and national phone and top up cards, Ahmed pointed out the international phone booths positiSoned at the rear of the shop. “ This is for the public to come and make cheap calls all over the world, “ he explains. Reporting for the people of Burngreave I guess I had to give this a try.
