    There was a VG in the village where I lived, IIRC it became a Londis then a SPAR.

    It caused a lot less stink than the one caused by the old name with fans of a Bee version of that Paul Weller Mod band.....

    I was amazed that a Spar opened in Nottingham City Centre (now closed) back in the mid 2000s as I have always associated them with suburbs and villages as you say.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    I remember Fine Fayre being the first supermarket in my local area closely followed by Asda. Plenty have come and gone since.. Presto's, Lipton's, Kwik Save.
