Store mem­o­ries

YOURS (UK) - - Senior Moments -

■ I was very in­ter­ested in the com­ments from is­sue 288 about shop­ping in depart­ment stores in the past. One men­tioned the fam­i­ly­owned Schofields in Leeds. In the early Six­ties I used to work there, print­ing the price tick­ets, and one of the perks was that in­stead of go­ing to the staff can­teen for our tea break, oc­ca­sion­ally we would go to the restau­rant and have coffee there. We would be served with nice cups and saucers and when fin­ished, the wait­resses would come round and re­fill your cup – no charge. Oh, to bring back some of the nice things from the past!
