Shop frozen in time for five decades after owner refused to accept decimalisation

STOCK IN THE PAST

THIS shop has remained frozen in time for five decades since the owner refused to accept decimalisation.

The shelves hold boxes of Pears soap priced at 3p, Stork margarine, tins of Princes’ pink salmon and Guinness is advertised as “good for you”.

Shopkeeper Frank Elliott, then in his 70s, refused to roll with the times in 1971 when the pound was switched from 240 pennies to 100.

Instead, his store — set up by his dad in Saltash, Cornwall, in 1902 — became a time capsule when he turned it into a museum. Frank died in 1995.
