Irene Leitch served her last customer at noon on Saturday (8th April) after 27 years of working in the Girvan Co-Op. Irene has seen many changes over the years, since 1990, from Managers and other staff members, to changes within the shop itself. Goods and prices have changed a lot too over the years.
Other interesting news items that year were: Anslie Manor opens. Alisa Craig Lighthouse became automated on 1st of March. ‘Escapade’ are the new band in town, playing a mix of Rock, Pop and Disco, Marion McClure is Girvan’s First Lady Fire fighter. British Blind Bowling Singles Championship takes place at Girvan, Just a wee glimpse at what was happening then.
All the staff wish Irene well (there was a lively meal and night out on Saturday too) and hope she enjoys her next big adventure ... wherever that takes her and Roddy.
