Hi exhg

Coyne's was a corner general grocery shop, lower down Commercial Road. As kids at Chapel Street school, which was a few hundred meters away they had a huge Penny tray of sweets. Mr Coyne, shock of gingery sandy hair, from my memory, always wore a white apron. There was a bacon slicer on the left as you walked in. Sold doughnuts too...special treat.....fresh cream doughnut !!

Can't remember Mrs. Coyne.

What did Masseys sell?

Russells ( I think it was called) corner shop - on the corner of Neville street. We used to buy lovely cakes for the children from there it was a real treat. Russell was so friendly and always ready for a chat. All these shops were what made Hazel Grove. Feel sad that over the years they've been replaced with soulless stores. Wish someone had fought for the Grove a long long time ago. crying crying Please don't tell me it's progress because I just don't see it. Look at Cheadle/Bramhall/Marple they've manage to keep their small shops.
