Opening in 1911, store 0011/0 Harlesden was the third store to open in London, following hot on the heels of Brixton and Woolwich. The store was gradually and significantly cut down in it’s final years, with half the frontage being passed over to Superdrug, and then the remaining salesfloor space cut again with a false wall installed at the back. Sadly, the store closed it’s door for the last time in January 1991. These two pictures show the store frontage as it was after cut down in January 1990 – one year prior to the final closure. At this stage the stores sales were in drastic and fast decline.
