No it wasn't the one at the top of Butcher Hill. It was (and the building is still there)the Co-Op at the roundabout on Otley Road, corner of Kepstorn Road, Spen Road and Otley Road. There has been a hairdressers on the top floor of the building on the right for many years. When it was the Co-Op, the shop on the left was the grocery store and the separate building on the right was the butchers. It remained like that until I would say the late 1960's. The shop on the right became "The Clockery", which is now a flower design shop, and the shop on the left has been a lauderette for many years. I remember in the early 1960's (no doubt earlier than that as well) there was an bright lit orange neon sign across the middle of the building between the ground and first floors, in scrolly writing staying "Leeds Industrial Co-0perative Society". Coming up from Leeds on Otley Road in winter, you could see this sign clearly lit up as you approached the roundabout - it was quite a landmark in its day!
