The Brontës come to a grocery store in Merchtem

The Brontës Went to Woolworths, the title of a 1931 novel by the British writer Rachel Ferguson, features in a talk by Valerie Sanders to be given to the Brussels Brontë Group later this year, in which Professor Sanders will talk to us about "clothes and shopping in the Brontë novels." 
Here in Belgium this Christmas, the Brontës went not to Woolworths but to a grocery store in Merchtem.
