    The pharmacy opened in 1958 Mr Jack May was the pharmacist/manager and his wife Win May ran the front shop,They lived in the flat above the shop. I had the pleasure of working with them from 1975 until they retired in 1982.

    it must have been the height of shopping in its day – it put the “store” in Brucefield into the shade. We used to go up when visiting my auntie may and looked huge compared to what we were used to.

    Lovely memories. My uncle was manager in the coop. Always remember the glass in his office on top floor. He could see all what was going on in the store but shoppers couldn’t see in.
