My family owned these stores and I managed the store for 6 years in the 80's.
We did the full spectre of music but specialised in imported soul, dance and rare groove records. Great memories and some great friends made during my time there.
Worked with Donna Hunt, and some regulars included Idris, Listiel, Mickey and big Colin who worked in Mr Byrites. Comment: John Watson

Name Jimmy The Moonlight Comment: SGT. Peppers was ace. A regular stop on our record buying Saturdays. Had a good seven inch section and were happy to stock local bands releases. There was a record shop opposite where local rock outfit T34 used to rehearse after hours. ( August 31, 2016).

Name Kelvin Page Comment: Forgot it's name tbh, but I too have many fond memories of going to Sgt peppers record shop to get my fix, on hearing the latest jazz funk of soul music being played there. My mate Steve jepson lived in oakfield rd east ham, I would call round for him then off we would walk down east ham high st to Sgt peppers to buy the latest tune out great days, still very much missed tbh.

I was living up the Romford Road in the mid-eighties and used to frequent the East Ham Sgt Peppers shop. Just listening to a copy of the Cool Notes Have a Good Forever purchased there. Great memories !

I remember the store in East ham very well. From around 1987 (I was 12), I used to steal money from my dad's till in his shop and pop to Sgt Pepper's after school to get my dose of some 12" vinyls. I still have all my vinyls I bought from the store. If I remember correctly a store opened up in Ilford too? Great memories!
