We all have our favourite shops and traders to visit when we’re out and about.
So we’ve taken a trip down the years in South Tyneside to dig out some of your favourite businesses.
Our archive was packed full of treasures. From Selwood Garages, to Mackay’s DIY - and a stop at Bombay Carry Out on the way home.
Did you always head down Frederick Street to visit your favourite shops? Where did you take your car for its annual check-up?
Tell us your must-visit favourites on a Saturday shopping trip.
Flick through our picture gallery above and see how many of these businesses you remember from South Tyneside’s bygone days.
