I've no idea whether JG Ballard ever visited the Purley Way, but I'm sure he'd have loved it.

Sainsbury's was founded in London in 1869 by John James Sainsbury and his wife Mary Ann. By 1922 it had become the UK's largest grocery retailer, a position which lasted until 1995 when Tesco became the market leader.
