    The co-op stopped people who added gravel to flower to make it more expensive and added bricks on scales aswell as the things the people buy.

    In the Victorian times shopkeepers would trick the poor bye putting rocks on the scale to make it look like the right amount when it wasn’t and that the poor was hardly getting any food. That is why they opened the cooprerative so the poor couldn’t be tricked anymore and have proper food.
