Does anyone remember the shops and superstores on Kilner Way before the current shopping centre was built?

I do remember Halfords having an old warehouse style building (shown above)

Also Comet had an electrical superstore there that was really dark and not very well kept (very dirty shop with bits of paper and stickers all over the windows and floors)

There was The Buttyman van serving hot sandwiches and butties on Kilner Way

There was GlynWebb home/housewares type shop

There was also S.R Gent factory store (was that next to the supermarket?)

Can you think of any others?

What was the name of the supermarket on the left as you turned onto Kilner Way - was it Gateway or Safeway or something?

across from Halfords was Somerfields supermarket. and next to it was a discount clothing store called SR Gents if i remember correctly.

 

here are some images i found a while back off a facebook group. i cannot remember the person who uploaded these images. so if the person is on here, i do apologise for posting these and if you wish for me to remove them, then i will do so.

 

and here is a bonus, a pic of the old superbowl/jungle jims next to halfords.
