The first was Beatties department store, at the bottom of Grange road. It had a pretty decent selection for a department store - I clearly remember flicking through the racks and seeing 'Weasels Ripped My Flesh' and Juicy Lucy's 'Get a Whiff of This' in and amongst the James Last and the Mantovani. But all my early purchases were from Beatties, usually using record tokens rather than cash.
