When I was at school in the 1960's I used to have a part time job working at this supermarket after school & on Saturdays, This was before it became a Mace supermarket, pre-Hanburys. Does anybody remember the original name of it?
                                                                                                                                                             

I am 99 per cent sure this supermarket was originally called the Maypole.

In 1978 it was definitely Liptons as we have photographic evidence: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pos=-2602

Please note that I've edited the last two posts below to get rid of the spurious code text that was appearing in the quotes. This was there because these replies were orginally posted before the forum was converted from Iconboard software to Simple Machines Forum (SMF) that is used now.

Sorry Sooty2, I wasn't disagreeing with you, just adding a bit more info. It seems to have changed hands / branding a number of times over the years. Does anyone ever use it now? I keep meaning to go in and have a look at what they're selling but when I go past it has always slipped my mind  Huh

I didnt think you were mark. I  used you to go in the cafe when I was a child with my aunt after she had visited Pamelas hairdressers for her weekly "Set" as she called it. It was then sprayed with laquer out of a squirty bottle. Pamelas hairdressers was over one of the shops across from Co Op electrical store as it is now called.It may of been over part of the co op buildings that included a smelly fish shop and I think a furniture store  and the grocery shop at the end near Market street. Pamela then moved on to Derby Way. My memory is on its way out these days being a 50 something, but I can remember the names of lots of the Market street shops. I can still smell the ground coffee and smoked bacon that you could buy from what I think was called Gore and Wilsons. Oh Happy Days !!!!!

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.

It was never a Maypole or Mace. I was part of the appliance shop (Bramwell & Singleton) next to Barclays Bank for a few years.
