THIS week's Flashback Thursday takes a look back at some favourite and much missed shops.

Fifty years ago, the first phase of the new Basingstoke town centre opened.

In that time many shops have come and gone. Did you buy records in Our Price? Or queue up for lunch at the always busy Griggs Pie Shop and bakery?

Here are some great black and white photos from the Gazette archive.
