Here's a photograph of C&A on High Street in Sheffield.

It was taken circa 1938 when there was a sale on holiday macs and raincoats!

Does anyone remember C&A?

Wasn't it bombed on 13 December 1940 and subsequently rebuilt in the 1950s?

On this day "18th March 1932 C&A opened their new store in the High Street."

I remember going there as a child - it seemed to be the go-to place for cheap(ish) kids clothes at the time, and they were tough enough for the rough and tumble at school. My only real recollection of the shop was it being very hot inside at one end and freezing at the other because of the huge doors. It was quite a shock when C&A closed (must be nearly 20 years ago) because there was so little warning. Presumably the building is scheduled for demolition now as part of the revamp of that area?

It has recently been converted to an Easy Hotel, so perhaps it is not going to be demolished any time soon. I can't imagine the owners spending lots of money on converting the building if demolition was likely.

Oh that's good news, thanks for the info

Just found an old Yorkshire Post article about it, suggesting the plan was to demolish part of the site:

Quote

The development comprises the first phase of a larger scheme with the second phase seeing the demolition of 51 to 57 High Street (also occupied by Primark) to deliver a residential scheme, which will be addressed as part of a separate application.
