The vending machine in Clifton sells milk, eggs, bacon, chocolate, and 76 other essentials. It is conveniently located next to the town pub. It can't replace a grocery store, but it can tide people over until they make the long trip to a grocery store in another town.
"I think this is a fantastic idea. The downside is I've come to buy some bacon, but I've had to go in the pub for a drink as well!" Clifton resident Sue Simpson said.
The electrical engineer who created the vending machine says even he would prefer to go to a real shop with a real person, but since the town is too small to support a store this is the best option.
