If you shopped in King's Lynn in the 1990s, it was a very different place.
Boxing Day and New Year's Day saw crowds queueing in the cold for the sales at Next.
And all year round, there was always Woolies for everything from the latest LP to children's clothes - not to mention the legendary Pic n' Mix.
The face of town has been transformed since then. For throughout the '80s and '90s, shoppers browsed for bargains in the Vancouver Centre.
By the early 2000s, plans were well in hand to knock it down and replace it with the Vancouver Quarter, a more modern shopping centre, with larger shops.
