The shop was there for many years but is now sadly closed its doors as many of the small corner shops have. It was an owned by an old lady called Ma Thickett when I was a teenager. She was notorious for selling 1 cigarette and 2 matches in a 2 oz triangular paper sweet bag to the older "braver" kids on the way to Hyde Town Hall disco on a Thursday night.
Not guilty, Mum , if you're reading this ;-)
