Do you remember going to Beatties restaurant with your nan for a toasted teacake on a Saturday?
Did you ever catch the park and ride bus from Bedford Road into town to do a bit of Christmas shopping?
Or, do you remember ever looking forward to grabbing some fresh bread or a jam doughnut from Baker's Oven?
In the Chronicle & Echo's latest picture gallery we take a look back at how the town's main shopping centre used to look before the millenium.
It brings back fond memories of our favourite shops including, Beatties and Littlewoods, which are gone but not forgotten.
