That this House recognises the hard work and dedication of convenience store owners and their staff during the covid-19 health crisis; recognises the vital role that those store owners and staff play in their local communities in ensuring the supply of food and essential household items; notes that such shops develop important relationships with their customers and help look after people in their communities; and commends the many shops that have been quick to respond to the crisis by helping their older and vulnerable customers by providing essential items and volunteering to deliver shopping to customers in high-risk groups and to people who are self-isolating.
