Pomeroy’s, Longwell Green

Pomeroy’s, Longwell Green

Who remembers Pomeroy’s store in Longwell Green? Situated on the Bath Road on the site currently occupied by Tesco’s, Pomeroy’s met the day to day shopping needs of Longwell Green residents for many years.

For a long time a “traditional” shop, Pomeroy’s eventually became a VG self-service shop in the days when supermarkets were in their infancy. The picture (courtesy of the South Gloucestershire Gazette) shows the shop in 1965, together with a selection of iconic cars of the time.
