April Fool’s Day

Back to our website: Village Stores

On Sunday April 1st David put a sign up outside the Keelby shop. The sign said that anyone who had bought a cold pastie from the shop, but who had then cooked it at home, had to return to the shop and pay a VAT surcharge. Hot pasties are subject to value added tax (a purchase tax) but cold ones are not. Only one person came back to pay the surcharge - David had to explain it was all just an April fools' joke.
