Shops such as 'Woolies', before John Lewis started creating their iconic Christmas adverts, Woolworth’s were the kings of Christmas. It opened it’s first Carlisle branch in the 1920s and closed in 2008.

At Pink Panther, you could buy the latest singles from here or even a 50p package of “surprise” singles The shop was situated in Globe Lane in 1987, but moved to Chapel Street in 2003.

Before Debenhams was built and Lanes Shopping Centre was expanded, there used to be a supermarket called Food Giant. The store was opened in 1992 but closed just a few years later.

Bullough's ran for almost 100 years, before becoming Hoopers in 2006.
