"I believe Unwins still own the shop and last time I looked you could see the old Unwins sign on the outside wall painted out. Coincidentally the chap and his sister who ran Unwins moved from there to take over the Smugglers before the present owners.

" I worked there for a very short while. I could not believe with the products they sold ie. cigarettes, spirits and booze of all kinds, that they did'nt have a panic button. You could not see the inside of the shop because of posters covering the windows, so if anyone untoward entered the shop, they would have had a free hand basically, as I was on my own on my shift with no alarm nerves would'nt allow me to stay for long !!

"I think off license was called Unwins and Mr Tink got stabbed during a robbery. He wasn't badly hurt as I remember , but it must have been traumatic."
