WOOLWORTHS, C&A, HMV and Littewoods are just some of the shops that have closed their doors over the years.

Mandy Kaufmann said: "I miss Woolies! Always miss the Ashton Woolies also pick n steal! oops... I mean pick n mix!Lol!"

Gaynor Padgham said: "Mothers Tea Shop in the arcade was a great place to go."

Dee Troughton said: "I miss the memories of being a youngster, popping into town and to go shopping.

Kay Wild said: "I miss Hardcastles."
