I used to get all my clothes from Tammy Girl. This was back when Spice Girls were big & I had platform wedges and puffer jackets! Those were the days.

"Presto" (perhaps formerly "Capital") mini-supermarkets. Bought over by Safeway long, long ago.

Yeah, I was about to say Music Zone ^

There used to be a gadget shop in the Bullring, I'm pretty sure it was a chain store (it's the Bullring after all..) which shut down a couple of years ago. I remember people used to just go in and play about with things but never buy anything, hence it shut down. If you go from the Bull towards Topman/River Island it was about two shops in on the left hand side. Anybody?

Music Zone... MVC...Wendy's
I was living in America last summer and the first thing I did when I got home was find out whether there was a Wendy's in England, was gutted when I found out they had all closed. Also gutted that Music Zone closed, was my favourite store.

Is Index the catalogue shop still going? the one in my town became Littlewoods and then that closed too. Also had a Safeway and What everyone wants in my town but their gone as well.

Dillon's newsagent. We had one at our local shops, then it disappeared and was replaced by Spar, then by Co-Op.

There was a game shop called "Electronics Boutique" or something which has now been renamed to "Game" I think.

John Menzies
Isn't John Menzies a distribution company though? They dispatch magazines and papers to other outlets like shops.
