Ah Burnage! Bought lots of stuff from Sifters when I went home to Manchester, mostly cassettes and a few CDs. However, at the old shop I recall I snapped up a B.B. King album on UK HMV is splendid condition and I still have it! Comment: Tony Burke

No mention of Sifters? I sold my entire vinyl collection to them when times were hard, must have been over 500 singles...Got less for the job lot than the copy of Spiral Scratch that was in there was actually worth, but guess they had to make a living, like everyone else. Comment: orgbox

Still open, still got the gig poster (now faded) of Oasis at Knebworth and Loch Lomond.

I found this advert in the 'Macclesfield Express' dated 28th April 1983: “SIFTERS RECORDS - BARGAINS GALORE! 106 Prince's Street, Stockport. Tel: 061-477 5344. Also at 177 Fog Lane, Didsbury, Manchester 20. Tel: 061-445 8697.”
… and this advert in the 'Manchester Evening News' dated 29th November 1989: “SIFTERS RECORDS Buy and sell new & second-hand Records, Tapes and Compact Discs. 177 Fog Lane (near Kingsway), Didsbury. Tel: 445 8697.”
