DO you remember the days when record stores used to rule Warrington?

Before the rise of digital music, the iTunes Store and streaming sites like Spotify, music lovers would sift through albums in the likes of Hott Waxx, Warrington Electric, Rumbelows, Dawsons, Andy's Records, Our Price and Virgin Megastore.

Even Woolies, which closed in 2009, was pretty good for music back in the day.

Now, all we have is HMV in Golden Square while Lizard Inc Records in Legh Street is keeping the faith for vinyl collectors.

For an upcoming feature, we would love to hear about your experiences at Warrington record shops that have been and gone.

Perhaps you picked up your favourite album at one of those stores or even have a picture from that pre-digital era when nothing could compare to have the tangible record, CD or tape in your hands.

Also feel free to share any stories from the days of Head – a record store that was in the town for less than two years.

Penketh-born Les Whitfield brought his independent chain to the site of HMV in 2013.

But Head lost out on the lease when HMV expressed an interest in returning to its original Warrington unit.

In its short time, the shop was welcomed by music fans and attracted the likes of Catfish and The Bottlemen and The Cribs for in-store gigs.
