I just had a brief memory today of a british sitcom in syndication I used to watch on the BBC network. I always watched this show b/c it reminded me of working in my fathers men's clothing store which still operates today and the appearance of the older fashion department store.
It was set in the ladies and gentlemens department store of Grace Brothers, a large fictional department store in London. It broadcast from 1972 - 1985. It was written by Jeremy Lioyd & David Croft. The idea sprout about from Lloyd's brief period of work at Simpsons of Piccadilly in the early 1950's, a clothing store that traded for over 60 years until 1999.
I have atttached a 2 brief clips of the episodes. Hope you enjoy!
