LOTS of you got in touch last week after we ran a story on the Burgess Brothers store in Warrington.

Burgess' was based on Town Hill, off Horsemarket Street, was much loved in the 1970s.

It was described as “like Disneyland” and many residents used to go on the bus every year with grandparents to visit the grotto.

Harry Wells, historian, told the history of the store in his book, Horsemarket to Orford Hall.

He said: "This modern building was erected for the Burgess Brothers store, selling household goods, which opened in October 1962.

"There were three sales floors with a floor space of 30,000 sq. ft.

"The ground floor, for household goods, was a self-service department, while the first floor was devoted to furniture, sink units and bathroom equipment.

"In the ‘cavernous’ basement was the agricultural machinery department.

"The company had its origins in a modest draper’s shop in Weaverham, where the business was founded in 1812.

"After Burgess’s closed, this was where Lloyds Bank moved when it vacated its old premises in Buttermarket Street. In March 2009 the bank, together with the former TSB bank on Bank Street, removed to the premises vacated by the Next store with frontages on Horsemarket Street and the Old Market Place."
