Andrew THOMPSON – Old Powburn Shop owner
Andrew THOMPSON was the original “grocer and provision dealer” who opened “large and commodious premises” at Powburn on 6 March 1883: the original ‘Old Powburn Shop’ . This was run by various members of the Thompson family as a grocer shop until 1911 when it was also being used as a Post Office. It then appears to have run as a Post Office until at least 1939.
