Questions about shops, pubs, cafes and chippies
« on: September 12, 2010, 09:15:57 PM »
We all know about Hoosons Chemist on the corner of Mostyn Street/Gloddaeth Street but does anyone know where a Hoosons Cafe was in Mostyn Street?

"BUNDLE OF DEEDS AND DOCUMENTS, relating to property "The Grocer’s Shop’, situate on the corner of Gloddaeth Street and Mostyn Street, Llandudno, co. Caerns. Also premises on Mostyn Street known as "Hooson’s Café". Contains schedule of deeds and documents. Annexed: PROBATE OF THE WILL (18 October 1905) of George Burton Thomas of ’The Moorings’, North Road, Caernarfon. Also correspondence relating to the Will and notification of tithe exemption, 1878."

Good work, Sue.  :) Hooson's Cafe at 98 Mostyn Street turns out (unsurprisingly) to be the first floor of Hooson's Chemist (what is now the Asia restaurant). Hooson's grocers at 7 Mostyn street is now Barnacles Chip Shop.

Years ago Hoosons owned the whole corner from their shop round in to Bodhyfryd Road.  Think Nigel from the newsagents now owns and rents out those little sshops.

Hello peeps,

Does anybody know of any decent sport shops that offer “running gait analysis” in the three Town’s area? My google searches turned up nothing so thought I might ask a local.

Cheers.

There used to be one at the bottom of mostyn street but it closed some time ago. Have you tried a visit to a podiatrist? I went to one some time ago and was diagnosed as an "over pronator" so was able to buy running shoes to correct it. They might be able to help you.

According to Google "With the help of specialised computer software and trained specialists, a persons running pattern can be analysed and advice offered as to which type of shoe they should choose."

As with all these types of courses I believe they would be on the lookout fora  practical application of their threories and may therefore examine members of the public to gain experience.

Rhyl had a "Hoosons Cafe" . It disappeared some time in the 1970s or 80s. An unusual name, anybody know of a connection?

I remember visiting a podiatrist for the same thing.

All he said to me was, "I wouldn't like to be in your shoes"  8)

If you have a look at page 3 of "Everything to do with Conwy" and the list of shops and businesses, there is mention on Bangor Road of Parrys Watch and Parrys Pot Shop. Don't know if these are relevant. One was opposite the Albion where I think Anthony Flints' estate agents is now, and the other either next door or across the road.
