1st air-con supermart

Fitzpatrick's supermarket in Orchard Road opened in August 1958, and shoppers were able to buy food and household items in air-conditioned comfort for the first time. The chain was acquired by Cold Storage in 1985. The building was later torn down and Paragon mall now stands on the site.
