These photos will bring a glow of nostalgia as we take you right back to the much-loved Blackpool shops which are lost but definitely not forgotten.

They are all from our archives - C&A, more from Lewis's, Binns, Beatties toy and model shop (remember Beatties?), Pricebusters and lots more. And we have included pictures of some of the staff who worked at these stores too. Blackpool still has a fantastic shopping centre but these places were all firm favourites and many people have fond memories of them. Send us your memories by email or in the comments. We would love to hear your stories of shopping trips in Blackpool.
