I did get another record store job a few years later in the Record department of Welwyn Department Store but that was no where near as a cool although, one day, another one of the people who ran the store got nicked while we were working. She and her husband, who worked in another part of the store, had apparently faked identities and were on the run from somewhere in Scotland. I'm not sure anyone has fond memories of the record department in Welwyn Department Store. kjb

I bought my first record there in 1963…I wanna hold your hand by the Beatles!!
The young shop assistant made up the difference between my saved 6s 6d and the 6s 8d cost….!

I found this advert in the 'Herford Mercury & Reformer' dated 15th August 1958: “WELWYN DEPARTMENT STORE LIMITED - WELWYN GARDEN CITY - RECORD DEPT., FIRST FLOOR.”
