I found this article in the 'Shipley Times & Express' dated Wednesday 16th March 1960:
“YOU CAN CHOOSE IN COMFORT AT THE NEW RECORD RENDEZVOUS: 'THE new “Record Rendezvous”, to be opened on Friday by J. S. Ramsbottom and Co. (Shipley) Ltd., in Westgate, Shipley, represents the very latest developments in record retailing. Here customers of every age and taste can listen in colourful surroundings and choose from the largest stock of records in the district. Private audition rooms are being provided, and the firm boast that they can obtain almost every type of record made throughout the world. The showroom is heated bv the latest underfloor heating, the heating elements being embedded in the floor giving a very even warmth with no heaters in sight. In addition to records the very best hi-fi equipment will be on sale, either complete, or Ramsbottoms can fit these into existing pieces of furniture, thereby providing “Custom Built” units to the exact wishes of customers.”
