Pointless Fact of the Day


#1

You’ll remember Green Shield Stamps.

You MAY remember that you could take your books of stamps &, if necessary, money to top up the value to Green Shield stores and purchase an item from a little catalogue.

Did you know that those stores were the beginning of Argos Stores ?

Well, you do now !!

I didn’t know that, Armers, but I do remember, as a very small Gus indeed, being given a washed-out pot of Shippams paste, a brush and the GSS books, plus GSSs and being exhorted to stick them in neatly. Kept me quiet for hours, that did, (which obviously was the object of the exercise)

I sort-of did, but it’s good to have these things confirmed.

Now part of Sainsbury’s.

Yerss, Fishy

Ours is moving from the town centre, which is very convenient, to our Sainsbury’s, which isn’t

Sigh

I think that we need summat to keep our strength up
