  • I think the new shop built in its place was called “Christines”. Sold children’s clothes if I remember rightly.

  • My Grandmother worked in that old shop in the mid 1960s and Holly Court was there at that time. I believe the shop was demolished late 60s or early 70s and a new one built, along with an extra unit (or maybe 2) in Holly CT itself.
