15 Years Ago We may have a third supermarket upon the arrival of Aldi but 15 years ago things were about to change elsewhere in grocery retail. It emerged that the new supermarket on the former rough car park at Lôn Parcwr would be Tesco. There started a war of words in town about the merits or otherwise of such a supermarket. The arguments about Aldi were very much more one-sided, in favour. Meanwhile, Kwik Save closed 15 yeqars ago, immediately after Christmas 2005 and, on January 25th 2005, reopened as Somerfield. Somerfield closed during February 2008, leaving us again with two supermarkets… till now.
