James Sime I remember the freezer shop that was there before the chinese. Iceberg.
Blantyre Project when was that James? I cant remember that.
James Sime Blantyre Project when I was a wee boy. I used to go around switching off the freezers! Ooops. It was called Iceberg one – I think there were others in halfway, cambuslang etc. The others had numbers also. I think it may have been linked to Wilkies?? Think it went out of business once Capital opened down at Clydeview. It then became the chinese.
James Sime James Sime this would have been the 80’s into early 90’s maybe
