When October Books, a small bookstore in Southampton, England, moved a few hundred feet down the street, they decided not to hire movers – instead, they called for volunteers to form a human conveyor belt!
Shoulder to shoulder, community members formed a line 500 feet long: from the stockroom of the old shop, down the sidewalk, and onto the shop floor of the new store.
Cafes brought cups of tea to the volunteers. People at bus stops joined in. Passersby asked what was happening, then joined the chain themselves.
