Opening of the new Key Markets store in 1981.

Was this the first large supermarket in Wickford?

On the 24th March, 1981, Key Markets opened a new store in Wickford.

A large number of people were waiting for the opening at 9am.  Were you one of them?

Were you one of the fruit tasters?

A jazz band played to welcome people to the new experience.
