There's one near me selling nothing but cash registers, no idea how it keeps going.
there was this house on the main street painted matte black with no sign, it just had 'SNAKES' written in chalk on the front.
actually here it is:
there was also a spar and a washing machine repair shop and that was it. fucking weird place.
I had no idea this place was there. My mate lives two streets down the hill from there too, which makes me really wonder how I missed a fucking snake shop!
although i never really went round that part often.
Might pick up some bits cheap when it has its closing down sale.
we've got two rival dog accessory shops on the market street.
why would you need an entire shop to front them?! Everytime I walk past it......
that opens at 7pm and closes at 3am.
Vacuum cleaner bags.
Just the bags, not actual hoovers.
send off for bags that would fit my apparently weird vacuum cleaner, this seems a good idea.
but an ice cream van goes around about 9pm every night
around the corner from the printworks or the Telescope shop in Edgeley near the football stadium.
We have a Primark.

If anyone knows Sam R tell him I want to see him about something
It sold nothing except sports trophies. I can't remember where it was, though.
had one of those too.
it sold bread and things.
Called 'Dis n Dat'
closed now sadly after 27 years :'(
There's a "sports bar' down my road I was planning to watch football in. Opened the door - no bar, no tv screens. Big seedy room with red curtains, a few 80s-looking old computers sparsely about and about 4 people. A bouncer man standing in the middle of the room giving me a look when I opened the door. Stared for about 2 seconds taking it all in but had to close the door being intimidated
it was next to a chip shop and open quite late too, perhaps hoping to get the drunk chip eating crowd in for some impulse chandelier purchases.
there was a shop which was an off licence and also sold cricket equipment. 'Id like a bottle of vodka and some stumps please'
That also sells fireworks.
When I was living in Stoke there was a newsagents that sold freshly baked naan breads... As in, there was a tandoori oven in the shop.
