Tomorrow (13th Feb 1971) Mrs Alice Robinson (87) will close the doors of her general store for the first time in 50 years, the reason is Decimalisation. 'I can't be bothered with this new money' she said. 'six robberies in five years couldn't close me, but this new money has.' she continued. Alice had no plans to retire until the currency went decimal. 'I know the old system and i'm not going to fiddle about with any new one.' she finished. Decimalisation begins on February 15th 1971.
