At last the well kept secret of Treasure is revealed.

The Evening Post Reporter, Nino Williams on 31st March revealed that “Tesco is to take over the site of a landmark Mumbles business, which is to close after 50 years of trading”.

The report goes on to tell us that “The supermarket giant is to take over Treasure’s property, on Newton Road, Mumbles although the coffee shop restaurant will remain. The owners Allan and Pat Lloyd will be retiring after 48 years of running the company . The name of Treasure will be a treasure lost to Mumbles. We wish Allan and Pat a happy and well deserved retirement.
