So ... Hintons became Presto became Safeway became Morrisons. Goodness me. Supermarket history, eh ... I wonder if you can do an MA in it?

Fine Fare, anyone? Gateway?? No?
(Since you ask, yes, I was indeed thinking about the Guisborough shop at 71 Westgate!)

I wonder what became of Walter Wilson?

OK, had a look myself, Walter Wilson was acquired by Alldays in 1998, Alldays now acquired by the Co-op.
