Binns was a high street favourite so here’s 25 scenes which will hopefully bring back happy memories.
From the gelataria in the 1980s to the Christmas windows – we’ve got photos of it all.
It was only last year that Hartlepool Mail readers chose the shop as the one they would most love to return from times gone by.
So take a look at the store you miss so much.
And if these scenes bring back happy memories, email [email protected] and share your recollections.
