The co op had to sell off a lot of shops, due to buying some other company.

Arleston drive is now a mcolls.

Ilkeston road is now a mcolls.

plus a few others. I always regarded mcolls as a newsagent type of shop.

I read that the McColls deal was to get rid of a few stores that didn't fit their portfolio. Otherwise, new stores seem to be springing up all over the place. It would be ironic if this flood of new "corner shops" killed off the supermarkets in the long run ;)

We have a McColls nearby in Southwell. It's open to 10pm daily. It's handy on a Sunday when everywhere else is closed at 4pm and it provides part time work for youngsters.

Radio vision house. Southey street/Bentinck rd. It was a TV and radio shop but had a comprehensive collection of model aircraft kits. I bought all my balsa wood, tissue paper glues and dope from there.
