IT'S ALL CHANGE..
THE credit crunch is hitting people's pockets - as they reach for small change to pay for items.
Shop owners said yesterday more customers are leaving notes and instead using coins. A spokesman for Curleys supermarket said: "We are seeing more people at the check-out taking the time to count out small change for whatever they're buying.
"People now don't see a problem with it. But it's good for the shop as we get charged for small change. If you order pounds 100 worth of 1ps, the bank charge pounds 1."
