Still mourning the loss of the Co-op in Maulden, Budgens is just not the same :( not til 2022 - but maybe an incentive for a few more co-ops around!

When I first moved to Ampthill, the Co-op shop was where Central Hairdressing is today, at the top of Baker Street. And when I was a girl, where I lived then,
my Mother always shopped at the Co-op, even right through the War, coupons and all. In those days they would put the cash for goods in a pulley system
and it would fly across the shop to the cashier's cubby hole, and then the change would coming flying back. Haven't we moved a long way since those days.
Although C.C. I rather think you were still a twinkle in your father's eye back then.
