The clock just stopped

Not just bricks and mortar,But a store of great renown 

Which catered for all customers

From the country and the town.
The toy store in the basement

At Christmas was a joy

If not for the salesperson 

It was for the little boy.

The adults they had all the space 

To shop and look and buy

The ladies at cosmetics were both beautiful and


The gentlemen in suits and ties were equally 


They’d treat you well and take your cash

Without being overbearing.
The staff nights out it must stated

Could never be classed as over rated.

The friends we made were there to last

Great memories of a happy past.
So now it’s sad to see it closed

With jobs destroyed and futures torn

Our thoughts are with the staff right now 

Let’s hope the future can be reborn
