“It sold interesting books and other bits and pieces, and it was a good music hub.”

Kim Jones said: “Woolworths, C&A and BHS.”

Janet Susan Barnes said: “Woolworths - I used to work there in the 1970s.”

Jess Hart said: “I miss Woolworths.

“My mum and dad used to take me in there to get me sweets.”
