This quiz is about past/present shops or business based in Tredegar. The name of the shop/business is mixed up and a clue given alongside it and state PAST OR PRESENT. The Author checks over three days if there are any possible answers placed and to see if they are correct. If you have the correct answer this entitles you to place a new mixed up shop/business. If the author isn't able to reply after 3 days, I will try and put a new one on here, or someone else can step in.

EXAMPLE
SOTEC - PAST - LEFT US FOR EBBW VALE

ANSWER TESCO
………………………………………………..

I WILL START YOU OFF

PINGSPOT - PAST - SOMETHING SHEEPISH ABOUT THIS
