The Trophy Shop, Grand Arcade.

Post by Leodian »

Passing by yesterday (October 29 2020) I noticed that The Trophy Shop in the Grand Arcade, Leeds, is closing down. Though I've never had need to use this long-established shop it always had an interesting window display. It may be that the owner wants to retire but sad if its demise is due to what must be a much reduced footfall resulting from the seemingly ever ongoing road works at the Vicar Lane entry/exit of the Grand Arcade.

A few years ago or more there was a shop in the Grand Arcade called Florence and Claire selling ladies hats , I remember seeing some beautiful hats in the windows. Also remember the Trophy Shop - both of these shops were there for a long time.

As a young child, in the 40's/50's, I always looked forward to seeing the animals in the Pet Shop window, and inside the shop.
