    Was watching this interesting video of a drive around Wrexham in 1988 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqUridJGQrs)

    Got me thinking of what Wrexham shops and businesses are still in the same place today. So I can only think of McDonalds, LLoyds bank and New Wave on Charles St.

    What shop/business in the town has been in the same place for the longest time?

    I’m sure there are some more, but of course I think the town had much greater range of shops and services then vs today.



    Ko Sing, JacK WilKinson garage, Walker tobacconists Brook street.
    Henry’s (Man’s world)
    Marrubbi’s Cafe
    Pubs will be the oldest. Golden Lion been there since 1670.


    Born Acorn

    TSB is in the same place, though it spent quite some time as the second Lloyds TSB branch before they were split.

    Edit: Also technically Tesco, though they completely reconfigured the site when the Holt Road roundabout was redesigned.



    Amazing how many people heading for the open Monday market on the site of Eagles Meadow.


    Rex Ham

    Grove Park Theatre on Hill St has been in the same place since the 1950’s



    Hales on Bank Street have been there for as long as I can remember & the furniture shop on Yorke Street.
