I found this classified ad. In the ‘Surrey Advertiser’ dated 5th May 1962:
“Sales Assistant, 16 to 17 years of age, required for record department, experience not essential, training will be given. Apply to: Barnes Avis Ltd., 36 High Street, Guildford.” ... and this piece in the ‘Surrey Advertiser’ dated 1st May 1970: “The Barnes Avis records department carries one of the widest selections in the County, from the latest to the finest classics. Facilities for listening to your selection with experts available to assist you in your choice.”
