Laburnam Stores

Postby Canvey2Nanning » Fri Nov 13, 2009 8:21 am

I think that was the name.
A small detached shop located on the right hand side, if approaching Small Gains corner from the direction of the Clockhouse.(nr maurice road)

For me, then, back in the early 60's this small shop selling bikes and bike bits and bobs plus other things, was an alladins cave.
If my memory serves correct, it was run by two brothers and I seem to remember a woman was also in the shop sometimes.
I left the Island in the early 70's and I'm pretty certain this shop had already closed.

Does anyone have any more info and or photographs.

Hi

I believe this is the shop you refer to - last open a few years ago selling fireworks. It is now a residence. I remember it in the 1970's selling airfix models
