Places   (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)

Hi all, this is a copy of my latest post in the Hobbies Messageboard, for those who havent seen my model of Wallgate Station and surroundings that I am building, I am in need of a little help.
The model is based in the late 40's ~ early 50's and while WW has been a massive source of information sometimes there are gaps.

I have numerous buildings on the go at any one time at the moment, currently working on Hellers Furniture store Wallgate / King St West and while I am pretty well ok with Hellers the premises under the same roof as Hellers and adjacent to the 'Alliance Chambers' (??) is a bit vague.
I have good detail of the building from about 1978 onwards, when it was "M A S Sales" but have no idea what / who was there in the late 40's ~ early 50's

If anyone has any ideas or knows who might,I would appreciate the Info.
In the meantime a bit of furniture in Hellers
