Yeah, sorry, I meant after the bus depot. We think the building was built for another supermarket?

The bus (tram) depot was there in the mid 1930s but I am not sure after that. I will ask around

Tram depot until trams went in 1935-ish. Then bus depot with, eventually, a new building. Then became ASDA when that was demolished - but cannot put a date on that yet

1, Tram Depot with facitities for the horses, stables etc.
2, Converted to electric tram operation.
3, Bus shed and workshops added.
4, Trams end, pits filled in, some entrance pillars removed to create extra room for bus movements.
5, MPTE in charge. Depot closes with most vehicles garaged at Laird St.
6, Depot demolished and put up for Sale.
7, Land purchased by a supermarket chain (NOT ASDA) and a new store created.
8, ASDA remodel the store.
9, Some years later the store is extended at the norther end.

I should have the dates for the bus/tram depot somewhere, but I can't remember who the original supermarket chain was, though.

Fine Fare maybe?. It was bought out by the Dee Corporation, which later became Gateway, and eventually Somerfield.
Also, maybe Victor Value?
