On the opposite side of the road is Parry's, which was one of
the few real ironmongers that used to be in the City centre.
Although the shop was small there was a large storeroom and you
could ask for almost any type of hardware or garden tool and
they would have it in stock.
The friendly staff were always on
hand to help, advice was readily offered and customer service
The shop closed in the early 1990s and was sadly
missed by many people.
