The Falkirk has long had a reputation for high quality, independent shops and we all have our favorites from the past.

Whether it be your local sweetie shop, newsagent, grocer or – as you got a bit older – pub, there are plenty of famous names which have served us well before disappearing from our high streets.

The Falkirk Herald is planning a special publication focusing on some of those much-missed establishments and we want to hear about the ones that stick in your memory.

To get you going, here’s a slideshow featuring Falkirk town centre from 1966 when things looked just a little bit different.

If you want to contribute to our publication, whether it’s to tell a story, share or photograph our just suggest a name, email us at editorial@falkirkherald.co.uk.
