We hope you’re having a special Valentine’s day – romance has certainly been in the air at Asda this week. We’ve been searching for couples who prove that love can stand the test of time which is why we invited Bill and Margaret into our Bridge of Dee store in Aberdeen for a Valentine’s surprise.

Bill and Margaret

The couple, who are regular shoppers at the store, will soon be celebrating their 68th wedding anniversary. They first met as teenagers and married after the war on 29th March, 1947.
