We are going on a retro shopping trip this week and asking for your help.
Here are four photographs of shops we knew and loved in Hartlepool and Peterlee.
Who remembers the Edgar Phillips premises in Hartlepool and did you shop there?
And what about the former Woolworths store, in the Castle Dene Shopping Centre in Peterlee?
Give us your memories of bargain hunting there.
Thirdly, who remembers Hector Graham’s shop in Hartlepool which boasted having “everything for the home decorator”?
And finally, what about this shot from around 30 years ago which shows the old Graftons shop in Hartlepool’s shopping centre?
We would love to hear from anyone with memories on these shops and any others you would like to recall.
