Does anyone remember the Haskins Sports shop in West Kirby , later to be taken over by Keighleys, who also had shops in Heswall and Moreton ?.

Is this the one that had a sign up a few years back saying "This is the winter of our discount tents."?

Moons ago there was a Haskins sports shop in Woodchurch Road, Prenton. LH side inbound. Next to Xavier Coyne's the chemist. Maybe the same Haskin family as the West Kirby one (?)

Stacked to the gunwhales with fireworks before Bonfire Night. Also used to sell magnesium ribbon - real fun could be had with that stuff ! Airfix models, balsa wood, card kits. All a kid could desire.

Pinzgauer, you're right, it was the same family. I worked in the West Kirby shop more or less straight from school, that was 1970. webbfish

I used to go to the Keighleys in Heswall when i was younger, strange though i dont remember it closing, apart from the usual model stuff i bought a knife there which i still have somewhere !.
Now i come to think of it i must have bought some fishing stuff there as well at one time !.

If you go back a few more years, Haskins Hoylake shop was run by Mr Haskins a professional one armed golfer who later commited suicide probably late fifties.

I think that was the shop that stocked Sub Aqua equipment.
I got a few items from them in late '60s.

Yep, i remember the sub aqua gear too. Had the toys n stuff downstairs and the model stuff upstairs. was an alladins cave for a young un! Think i bought my first GAT gun from there too! Then it was the DIANA pistol, caus it looked like a 9mm Browning! I always had enough to spend there, but never too much!!
