Have your say

I am trying to find the oldest businesses in The News circulation area.

I have found what I believe is the oldest butcher’s shop, which has been trading in the same shop for more than 50 years.

I would like to hear from anyone who knows of businesses that have been trading in the same location for years and possibly with the same owner who is willing to be interviewed.

It could be a car showroom, hairdresser, greengrocer, factory or garage even.

Please let me know your suggestions.
