    They can either be national chains (e.g. woolworths) or more local shops.

    PastTimes. They sold cute trinkets. Used to like going in there. No idea if any stores are still open, but all the ones near me are shut down.

    We used to have a corner shop I would buy sweets from after school during primary. I remember once, it was a special occasion of some sort and I pick-and-mixed like 50 sweets when I usually only bought a handful. The owners were cool as sh*t too, but they moved away before I finished primary. :emo: I think the place is a hairdressers' now. :dontknow: I don't go that way very often anymore.

    Woolworths, BHS and M&S

    EDIT:

    They closed the two M&S in my local area, not nationwide before someone quotes me again saying that M&S is still in their area!
