Just looking at Ben's Place in Arkwright Street Nottingham, which I suspect must be Ben Parker. I was the owner of Arcade Records in Nottingham which was originally in the West End Arcade before moving out to a two floor shop calling us Arcade 2 in Chapel Bar literally less than a 100 yards away. I bought the original business from Ben when he opened another store in the Arcade which did not take off. Cost me about £1000 all in. After 10 years in the Arcade we did another 17 before calling it a day in 2000. Beaten by the internet and supermarket discounting but when the building owners wanted to sell up to developers so they could build a hotel etc. I did not bother to look for other city centre premises.
