Staff and shoppers celebrate 25 years of ringing through the tills
A QUARTER of a century of ringing tills and happy shoppers at one of Bristol's most popular supermarkets was celebrated with a visit from Bristol's Lord Mayor.
Councillor Peter Main made a special trip to Asda Bedminster yesterday as the store marked its 25th birthday.
The former site of one of the Wills' Tobacco factories was transformed into a modern superstore back in 1988 and has been serving the local community ever since.
Plenty of changes have taken place over the years but the supermarket remains one of Bristol's retail landmarks.
