Event description

Description

A small number of Plymouth's independent stores have survived into the 21st century.

Among them are Lawsons who have significantly expanded their West Country operation over the last 20 years, and Goulds, who are finding life increasingly difficult with competition from companies such as Blacks, Cotswold and Go Outdoors.

Other shops, such as Costers, Tozers and Moons disappeared from the High Street many years ago but are remembered fondly.

This illustrated talk by Alan Bricknell of the University of the Third Age looks at the history of each of these companies, and concludes with a brief look at the history of Plymouth Co-operative.

£2 per person. Advance booking advised. Pay on the day available.
