I am trying to find out information on the Supasave Group which I believe existed in the 1970's in Notts, and was started in Warsop, possibly by a David LEE. In particular it would be helpful if I could obtain a list of stores in the Group, especially if this included a store in Newark on Trent. (The store address would also be helpful). Please let me know if you can help - many thanks!

No Legz, I'm not being short-sighted at all! You're absolutely right about large supermarkets killing local shops and that's why I opposed the building of a Tesco in Warsop a few years ago. You don't have to argue with me about that. I've already said my bit and fully agree with what you're saying! Though it's a little ironic as Warsop was a pioneer of supermarkets almost 50 years ago when David Lee took over his dad's hardware store on Sherwood Street (who remembers that?) and opened Leefair, which he later changed to Supasave and started the chain.
