I am writing a book about the changes in the retail TV & radio trade since the war.
As I am sure those of you over a certain age will recall,high streets used to be full of a large number of retail and rental TV chains.
Sheffield had the Head Office of Wigfalls, as well as a number of their stores.
(In fact, they had 100 branches in 1985.)
I am trying to contact anyone who worked for them, and gather as much information as possible about the company.
I know they took over Curry's, and assumed the better-known Curry's name, and that they, in turn, were absorbed by Dixons.
However, I would also like anecdotes, and trivia items, plus, especially, any human interest stories.
Recollections about them, of any type are welcomed.
If anyone has any such information, please contact me by PM, or email to: alan "at" alanstepney.info
Of course, some of you may have memories that others in your local area might appreciate, so why not post them here too?
The same applies to any of the other "high street" multiple tv outlets.
If you worked for any of them, please get in touch. Particularly if you were involved in the tehcnical side.
