It was Avery stores, run by Phylis Avery. Wouldn't look out of place in an episode of League of Gentleman.

We had a much more unsavoury name for it!

I believe a Mr Rance used to help out in the shop. Not sure what if any his relationship was with the two 'ladies'.

I remember them. There were 3 shops along the top of Gold Hill that sold sweets. Only one remains.
Previously the shop was a bicycle repair shop. That was over 70 years ago though.
