13 pictures of how we spent our Saturdays in South Tyneside in the 2000s - what did you get up to?

Was this how you spent your time in the 2000s?

Would it have included a cuppa in Franchis, a look in GK Lee and trying out the latest shoes in Riddicks.

Would you have selected a DVD from Blockbuster or a gift from the Curiosity Shop?

How about fish and chips from Gills or the latest fashions from Geordie Jeans ?

Take a look through our 13photos – of former shops and some still with us – and see how many of these scenes bring back memories of a great day out.
