Sainsburys And Hudsons - a Memory of Ashford.
I also remember going into Sainsburys as a child in the 1960s when it was halfway up the High Street on the left, it had metal racks on the front of the counters to rest shopping bags on. The marble effect floors were a vivid memory also.
I worked part time in the shop called Hudsons, after school and also on Saturdays, around 1974 or 75, just before leaving school. You could buy brown sugar from wooden drawers behind the counters, loose and put into brown bags. When the shop closed, it became a Wimpey burger place, at the lower end of the High Street.
