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
