    I’m pretty sure there was a small music and video/pick and mix shop in the Metro Centre when it first opened. From fuzzy memory, I think this was in the red mall, about where Clarks and the 3 store are now. Same format as the original Middlesbrough Hill Street store. Not sure exactly when this closed – probably early 90s, certainly long before the newer C&A store opened.

      Thanks Brian – that doesn’t surprise me at all! I remember there also being one at Meadowhall when I was living in Sheffield in the mid 1990s.

      We just need to find someone with an old mall guide, to pinpoint its location for sure!
