I've got Thai, Chinese and Indian grocery stores within walking distance of my flat as well as a decent eastern European one and a Spanish deli which sells stuff too. I use them all and try to get fish from Welch's down by my work. Decent green grocers are underrated and far too rare these days, don't have one anywhere close and the only ones I know of in Edinburgh are stupidly expensive.

Smiths on Glasgow Rd for meat and a blether with an old fashioned butcher and then next door to get my nasal hair waxed by the Turkish barbers.
Loss of wee shops as you describe are a shame but it’s the world we live in sadly. They just can’t compete.

Smiths venison burgers are absolutely exceptional. Also really rate their square sausage.

Will say there have been a few local shops/takeaways that’s still don’t take card need shutting down.

In a world where free cashpoint machines exist, and shops choose to not divert profits to global conglomerates, I'm thinking you're an idiot.

Two of four cashpoints in my local town started charging 95 pence a transaction from last week. Will be interesting to see if the other two follow suit or if the two chargers get removed. That leaves 4 free ones elsewhere in the town by my reckoning.

Does Villeneuve on Broughton street not do beers too? Not too far from Easter Road.

In Broughton st I prefer Vino.  Bit pricey up there though.  A bottle of Augustiner  is 50p cheaper in top cellar.  I was in Vino today actually.  Decent selection of beers.  I’ve never been in Villeneuve, sounds like I’d be looked down upon for buying beer.

The beerhive at Rodney street in canonmills is well worth a visit. The owner, Peter, is a gent and is a great help, especially when asking about new stuff.

Couldn't tell you where my nearest butchers is, or the nearest ironmongers,...

You mean you don't have ironmongery needs?
