If I wanted to buy a dress I went to Bell Bros. or D Hill Carter.
My earliest memory of shops and shopping was working as an errand girl for McConnell’s & McAvoy’s on Preston Rd; it was a grocery shop.
My mum and my nana had ran shops themselves. Nana’s shop was called E Short and we lived above the shop.
When I was first married, I did all my shopping at the Hadrian, on the corner of Saville St. and Howdon Rd. If I wanted dresses, I went to Bell Bros or D Hill Carter, they were both nice shops. I also bought school stuff there, there was a good selection.
