J C Smiths

We all fondly remember J C Smiths, or as it was affectionately known “Smiths On The Bridge” The photos in the slideshow have been made available by Nuneaton Museum for Nuneaton Memories

Located on Bridge Street, Nuneaton with another entrance in Newdegate Square and Newdegate Street it was without doubt, Nuneatons top departmental store.

Fondly remembering the fantastic Santas Grotto with running water and moving “statues” complete with snow to keep the youngsters occupied until they met the great man himself, the food hall, floor covered with sawdust where cheeses and cooked meats were queued for, sometimes the queue was out the door !
