Rye stepped back in time to the 1970s with authentic 70s vehicles and shopfronts in place for the film-shoot. The old Woolworths became Veitch’s fashion store and an open fronted greengrocers was created with fresh produce on display.

PUBLISHED: 08:00 19 January 2019 Judy Rimmer These Bruce Springsteen cassettes were the only ones Judy Rimmer could find in her house Picture: JUDY RIMMER Archant Slade, Abba or even Timmy Mallett? Which was the first cassette you ever bought? Following reports that cassettes are making a comeback, people have been recalling the first tape they owned. The special stamp showed the vinyl version, but Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield was also a hit on cassette Picture: ROYAL MAIL/PA WIREBack in the 1970s, 80s and through to 90s, most homes were packed with music tapes.The first one I personally remember owning is The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie, released in 1972. I suspect I received it as either a birthday or Christmas present, though, rather than actually forking out the purchase price, which would have been astronomic for a 12-year-old.

When they finally relented, we went to the E. J. Korvette department store on North Olden Avenue just outside of Trenton. I got to thinking about Korvettes, which went out of business in 1980, last week because it looked like Sears was just about to do the same. Sears and its sister chain Kmart are still alive, but their fate — in the hands of the Bankruptcy Court in New York — should be resolved any day now. Meantime, if you, too, are feeling nostalgic for stores that are no longer with us, here’s a brief list of just some of the hundreds upon hundreds of well-known chains that have disappeared from … [Read more...] about All sales final
