In the old days there were no $2 Shops or Warehouses. People didn't have lots of money or credit cards.

The shopkeepers would make you stand at the counter while they made your orders. They didn't use dollars and cents but instead they used pounds, shillings and pence.

They had no supermarkets and malls but there were lots of small businesses like butchers, green grocers, material shops and woolshops. The main department store was Woolworths (it didn't sell groceries back then). There were no cafes then.
