Comment: Richards had branches in Canterbury, Ashford and Maidstone.
I lived in Canterbury and passed the store every day on my way to and from school. Richard was always very helpful and would order anything you were after.
I think YMCA and Super Trooper on 7" would have been the first things I bought there.
The records gradually gave way to CDs and now the store is gone.
Comment: As kids we used to go on holiday to Broadstairs, and would always pop into Canterbury for a day. There was a place there called Richards Records, and I used to find some great stuff in there. The only pain in the arse was not having a turntable at the holiday house, so I had to wait to get back home to play them.
