m'cr shops - gone but not forsgotten..
« on: 17:15:27, 10/02/13 »
lewis's, woolworths & the underground market are gone (but not forgotten).. can anyone remember the name of the boutique opposite picadilly gardens that was designed like a cave? it had white walls that were made to look like a cavern with weird-shaped glass windows..

Not the Mcr underground I went through a hippie stage at 16 17 and got most of my clobber there I realise they cannot stop open waiting for me and my mates to trample back through time but it is sad.

TManu years ago, tere was a boutique at the bottom of Oldham Street with a weird and futuristic decor. It was called (I think) 2 7 11 pronounced Two Seven Eleven.   May be the one you mean???

Just to "try" again, I think it was 4 7 11...... not  2 7 11!!!

I worked at Chelsea girl in 1971. I used to sit on this pedalstill in the middle of the shop and watch for shoplifting!! Loved the clothes!!
