Record House - originally called Radio House in the 1960s, closed in 2005. Used to also have branches in Chesham and Princess Risborough, now only in Aylesbury
Adrian Partington now from Portsmouth remembers there was a Chinese Restaurant called 'Swans' in the '70s, this changed it's name in the 80s to "Manns"

I found this piece in the 'Buckinghamshire Examiner' dated 29th March 1974: “ALL RECORDS REVIEWED IN THESE COLUMNS ARE AVAILABLE AT RADIO HOUSE, 84 SYCAMORE ROAD, AMERSHAM. Tel: 3311.”

I found this advert in the 'Buckinghamshire Examiner' dated 23rd November 1973: “RECORD HOUSE, CHESHAM'S RECORD AND TAPE CENTRE, 9 MARKET SQUARE. Tel. CHESHAM 74549.”
… and this in the 30th November 1973 edition: “Record House, the new record shop opened in Market Square. Chesham by the owners of Amersham's Radio House, is still a family business. Chairman of the business is Mr Derek Sinclair, who is also majority shareholder. His wife is a director.”
… also this in the 5th September 1975 edition: “RADIO HOUSE 84 SYCAMORE ROAD, AMERSHAM Tel. AMERSHAM 3311. Have you visited our new Branch? 7A HIGH STREET, PRINCES RISBOROUGH. CLASSICS, EASY LISTENING, PROGRESSIVE, IMPORTS, SPECIALIST DISCS, DISCOUNTS, SPECIAL OFFERS, BARGAIN BOXES. NOT ONLY YOUR LOCAL RECORD AND TAPE CENTRE, BUT SECOND TO NONE FOR STOCK AND SERVICE IN THE WHOLE OF BUCKS.”
… and these addresses in the 12th November 1976 edition: “RECORD HOUSE 84 SYCAMORE ROAD, AMERSHAM, BUCKS. Tel: AMERSHAM 3311; 9 MARKET SQUARE, CHESHAM, BUCKS. Tel: CHESHAM 74549; 7A HlGH ST. PRINCES RISBOROUGH, BUCKS. Tel: PRINCES RISBOROUGH 8448.”
