THE END OF AN ERA
Niddrie's toy shop in Lewin Street, established in 1918, and a genuine Middlewich institution. The shop is due to close on Monday 4th July after 93 years and, for once, that overworked expression 'The End Of An Era' will be fully justified. Thankfully, though, the shop itself will not be demolished but rented out*. It will be interesting to see what kind of retail establishment takes the place of this venerable business.
*UPDATE. Not true, unfortunately. Demolition began at the end of June 2012. Photo: The Local Data Company
