Nice. I'm thinking it must be a Co-Op electrical department, as I'm not aware of the radio on the shelf at top right having been branded anything but Defiant, and Defiant goods as far as I know were never available to other retailers.
Bliss. Anyone else remember when the Co-Op was called just "The Store"? We all knew what that meant. Funny to think in those days we called shops by their owners names rather than the shops name.
Where we were: Food shop was Curry's (ran by Mr. and Mrs. Curry). Charlton's (Post Office ran by Mr Charlton) and Cleverly's, the newsagents ran by the horrible Mrs. Cleverly. Despite her unpleasantness towards children I remember buying Tudor Crisps and Matchbox cars at her place.
Yes Mike,I can still remember my parents Co-op divi number as well.
The flimsy was a slip of paper that you were given with each purchase. It had your number and the value of the purchase so that when the divi rate was announced you could calculate how much you were due.
During the early 60s the 'store' in my home town was individual shops spread over 3 streets. By the end of the 60s many of these had been merged into larger premises. At that time the radio and TV section had the largest display of TV sets for 25 miles. Oh how things changed.
