Can anyone remember what shops were in the Empire Arcade before it was closed down and turned in Havey Nichols.We have just been having a discussion about it and we can remember the large newsagents on the right handside, a hairdressers and Quasar but not much else.Apologies if this has been posted before.

Wasn't there an expensive Grnets' hairdressers in there and a model shop? Certainly an 'Alternative' clothes shop - where I got my first leather jeans from!

What about Black Cat records, a second hand shop in the late 80s / early 90s? I think that was down in the bottom right hand corner.Vinyl downstairs and tapes upstairs. Not sure about CDs, as my pocket money would only stretch to tapes.

Towards the end there was one of those laser places where you shot each other with guns wasn't there?

Yeah I remember that. It was rubbish. they had/ still have one at Sweet Street Bowling alley. I also remember there being an upstairs to the Empire Arcade I think. I was young so someone may want to correct me on that!
