Redbowen, Burtons were a part of the Fine Fare group way before the 80's.They were in the Council House shops and also had a branch in Southwell. They were serviced by the Fine Fare depot in Hucknall at Broomhill Park

McFisheries were where Wetherspoons are now located opposite slab square.

 

Does anyone remember the shops on Wilford Road in the Meadows. Astles fruit and veg, Battersby's shoe repairs, Aucklands butchers near the doctors surgery, Fords next to a mini supermarket called Bellwood Discount, Vernons supermarket, Doyles news agents, Simmons pot shop with the cheeky innuendoes in the window,Toulsons the pork butchers, Boots, Dewhursts, the shoe shop next to Boots, Clays sweet shop, Marsdens,Meadow Dairy - cant remember any more at the moment, can anybody add any more? All your mam's shopping in one go:blink:

Great for cheap work clobber..nowt wrong with 'slight seconds' when knee deep in garbage. Crofts, Playland, Manchester Direct, Morleys Bread all around here...the Green was never short of shops...i even gave Garfinkels the turn.

‘Carver Hutchins’ they called him! Never went there but knew of him by reputation. A fourpenny all off was his speciality! You can just see the rooftop of our house on Park Rd. In Woodthorpe next to the TV aerial.

Just read on the Post website that Jermy & Westerman, Bubblewrap’s favourite bookshop, is closing down in a couple of weeks.  What a shame, another old Nottingham establishment disappearing.

What's happened to him ? I noticed him walking past my house a week or so ago, and he looked OK.

Probably fed up with the forum ;)  He is a mine of information and sadly missed.

Jessops....my favourite Nottingham shop. Just back from a visit to Nottingham and going to John Lewis was an absolute must. We don't have one anywhere near where I live so it means a trip to either Nottingham or Sheffield as they are the closest branches.

Some desirable signage there, my preference would be the Decca

also love the HMV.. possibly neon? not familiar with EKCO so googled:( bought out Dynomic in '54 apparently..I mentioned some  throwaway mic's previously that were great, same brand, no way 1954 though, I think early 60's.
