Yoke Shopper – the inventor’s story…
The story of the Yoke Shopper begins 20 years ago – when Matt almost got arrested on the way back from the supermarket.
At the time I was at university and like most students without a car had to walk to the supermarket.
It was tough in those days. The supermarket was an uphill-both-ways 4-mile roundtrip. To make carrying my heaving shopping easier I was in the habit of taking off my belt and looping it around the carrier bag handles to carry the shopping on my shoulder.
Alas, without my belt performing its normal job my trousers fell down – while crossing a busy road in front of a police car.
Thankfully they saw the funny side and I decided I had better invent something to carry my shopping and which wouldn’t lead to my trousers falling down again.
And so after four years of painstaking research and development the Yoke Shopper was born.
