Asda Construction 2006

Not everyone was looking forward to shopping in the new Asda. I was one of them.

April 2006 | Newton Abbot

These pictures were taken with the bridge camera I had at the time – a Panasonic DMC-FZ7. I have no idea why I used this camera, which is the poorest in terms of quality I have ever owned, because I had an excellent Canon at the time. Photographs taken with it were astonishingly poor and not at all what all the hype at the time suggested. I purchased it for travelling, especially abroad, as it was incredibly small and light. I will not make that mistake again.

Anyway, these photos are of nothing more than historic interest and follow on from the photographs in an earlier post on the demolition to make way for Asda. This is the store under construction, and even before it was opened it was the talk of the town. I am sure that some people welcomed it but a great many vowed never to enter when it was finally opened. It seems to be doing very good business, but I am pleased to say I am not one of their customers.
