The supermarket on the Hollins was the first building to be occupied on the parade by John Williams, the multipule grocers in the Stockport/Cheshire area. John Williams had two shops in Marple, one on Market Street between Whites Butchers (which was then Rodgers Butchers) and Astleys Newsagents. The other shop was where Dolce Vita resteraunt is now. They moved across the road when the new supermarket was built, it had a cafe upstairs when first opened but that soon closed down because all the local youths were using it, buying a cup of tea and spend all day using it as a youth club. Those same youths will be grandparents now.
