Yes. I remember Claytons Clothiers.

My Dad Cyril Turner worked for Albert Clayton. First after the war in their shop around 1946. Then later as a collector salesman in the Retford area.

Claytons started a catalog, before Grattons ever happened. They also launched a credit idea called Shopacheck.

I remember their depot was just off the Moor.

I have no idea what happened to the business, but it was still going in the late 70's.

Here is a link to a picturesheffield.com photo of Porter Street showing Clayton's at the right-hand side. When these properties were demolished in c. 1961 they moved to Cumberland Way nearby (where the Moor Market is now).
