Mystery Shop

Roy asks:


"Back in the early 60’s when I was in my adolescent teens I had a job as a grocery boy working a few late afternoons and Saturday mornings for a privately owned grocery shop in Church Road at the junction with Strouds Close, Worcester Park. 

I recall the neighbourhood being known locally as Old Malden or The Plough -a local pub- although sadly the shop has long gone to be replaced, I think, by an Italian restaurant but I guess readers will already know all this!

To this day I don’t know the name of the shop as everyone knew the grocers by the name of the proprietor, a Mrs Mac (possibly Mc Donald) who with her husband and staff were a delight to work for.

I would be really grateful if anyone can tell me the name of the shop with any additional information, photos etc."

Can you help Roy with any information?
