Randall’s is not serving any more
IT WAS with great sadness that I read of Randall’s, whose 1891 debut predated Liverpool FC’s birth and not soon after many of the original football league’s team inceptions! [‘Doors set to close for the final time’, Gazette, December 17].
This grand Uxbridge icon in Vine Street strikes a chord with me, as, growing up in Southall, I well remember another wonderful department store, Daniels, which was in Uxbridge Road, West Ealing, and I spent many an afternoon there.
I’m pretty sure the writers of Are You Being Served may have paid a visit to Randall’s, maybe to find some inspiration for their classic TV sitcom. Maybe there was an equivalent ‘Mr Humphries’ or ‘Mrs Slocombe’ in Uxbridge or nearby?
I wonder what the proposed MP-in-waiting for Uxbridge and South Ruislip has to ponder about Randall’s fate? Come on Boris, let’s hear you. MARK BRYCE
