    Anyone able to settle an argument I've got with the wife, was Asda any other store other than Woolco previously? I say no!

    Other shops no longer there:

    Supermarkets- Presto and FineFare/Gateway.
    Sports shop- Top Sports.
    Teen clothes shop- Kylie.

    Re the earlier posting of what Asda was prior - it was originally Woolco (remember they used to staple your 7" single in a bag with pink staples!!) and then it was briefly Gateway before it was taken over by Asda.

    Other shops I have remembered are:

    Olivers - the fresh bread shop. It was like the Pied Piper of the centre! The smell of the fresh bead could reel you in even if you didn't need bread :D
