Some photographs dug out from the old files of long ago. I especially enjoyed the one of the old offices showing the old computers and fashion.

Check out the old lorry with the Appleby Westward signage and the old(ish) SPAR store.

Something from the archives:

"Appleby Westward is a private company formed in August 1984, as a result of the amalgamation of two wholesalers, Appleby & Son of Bristol and Westward Food Distributors of Saltash.

The company's main activity is food distribution to retailers operating stores in the SPAR and VG symbol groups in the West Country."
