I work at ‘the most expensive newsagent in the UK’ – customers travel up to two hours to buy our big ticket items

CUSTOMERS have traveled up to TWO hours for a soft drink from ‘Britain’s most expensive kiosk’, but they’re not complaining.

Controversial corner store Wakefield Wines in West Yorkshire has attracted a lot of attention after selling soft drinks for £20 a bottle.

The exorbitant price of Prime Hydration created a frenzy on social media among young people after the brand was launched earlier this year by YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul.

Despite retailing at just £2, Millie Hazelgrave, from Castleford, traveled to buy six bottles of PRIME from Wakey Wines, which cost her £145.

Two disappointed players, Danny Booth and David Clempner, left empty-handed after driving all the way from Manchester for the soda, only to be told it had run out.

Other visitors, who appear on the owner’s TikTok account, @wakey_wines01924724141, made the trip from Mansfield and Sheffield.

The trader states in his videos that people can only buy two bottles at a time.

TikTok users are stunned but amused by the high prices.

One person commented: “Wooooow £1.80 a bottle at Asda and you charge so much.”

Others posted: “Scam”, “Daylight theft” and “Brother officially lost track”.

‘Wakey Wines’ has been contacted for comment.

“I’m the one who thinks there’s been a cost of living crisis,” added a third.

Another corner shop selling PRIME at £15 is a Nisa Local in Worcester.

Trader Ameer Khan said: “No one complained about the price.

“People leave me their phone number so I can tell them we have some in stock.”

One player paid £80 for a case, while another paid £15 to keep a bottle behind the counter so no one else could buy it.

He added that some people came every 10 minutes on a Friday to ask if the bottles had already been delivered, the Worcester News reported.

But the mania forced Ameer to keep the bottles behind the counter.

And the 21-year-old has even set limits on how much each person can buy, as children flock to his shop to grab the drinks.
