I remember this shop as well.I have been in it with my Auntie Annie, when I was a little girl.I was in awe with all the sparkling jewellery.

My late sister's job, aged 15, was with Nimans. The TV shop it became was Rumbelows.

Yes DerekB I had forgot what shop it was after Nimans.

Just goes to show, town centre shops closing is not a new thing!

Yes shops still closed then, but another one opened. It didn't end up like a ghost town, like it has now.
