BBC: "How first out-of-town superstore changed the UK"

Link to web site

"Nearly five decades have passed since the UK's first out-of-town superstore opened its doors. It differed starkly from the outlets used by millions today, but it helped change British shopping forever.

"... Developments like this would later be blamed for crushing independent traders, emptying out High Streets, and imposing a stultifying homogeneity on the nation's retail habits.

"But at a time when most Britons did their shopping in the local greengrocer, and memories of wartime rationing were fresh, this huge vision of consumer abundance symbolised a new era of modern affluence to many."
