1981 Pate’s Newsagents

Who remembers Pate’s Newsagents on Stonefield Road? Wullie Pate moved to this location after his shop on Glasgow Road was scheduled for demolition at the start of the 80’s.

Moving into Benhams former shop, it not only sold newspapers and magazines but groceries, fruit and veg too. This was a time of significant change for Blantyre, especially for those not quite ready for retirement and having to move.
