“Not too far from here”

Incoming from snowy Sheffield, this mildly suspicious ad from a local Tesco:


Is this the classifieds equivalent of an old Ford Transit Van with a tatty piece of cardboard proclaiming “Free Sweeties” next to its potentially open sliding door?

In all likelihood, it’s probably just an old dear with entirely innocent intentions of making £4.50 and protecting some kids from the spring showers.
But that “not too far from here” line does make it look ever so slightly creepy, no?
