Carson Stationer Closed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Went to get some stuff from Carson on West St. and it was closed down! Looks like they are gutting the inside.

 

I don't know where to go now for stationery in this part of town, short of going right down Fargate to Smiths.

Given the thread title, I was wondering who Carson Stationer was. You could have just said they've closed down.

there used to be a stationers on the right hand side of the moor (the road parellel with the moor) as you walk down, you could also get to it if you walk down from west street, down past dev green etc (the corps near where it used to be?)

I remember old man Carson. Used to really have a go at young people buying "Torch" markers (a permanent marker with a 1" nib), accusing them of using them for graffiti, whether you were or not - but he still sold to them.

Don't go to Smith's on Fargate or you will be disappointed again. They are closed for building work. However they have opened temporary store on Pinstone Street.

Pinders are definitely more print-shoppy but they have a good amount of stuff in stock.
