Yes, it was Safeway then Netto (48 Wallasey Road). There is also "Toys 2 Go" that has had two other addresses on Wallasey Road but not 48

I loved Bookland as a kid. Wasn't it two shops in one? A bookshop and a stationary shop? Any idea when that and Toners closed?

Think the electrical store was Rumbelows, and it might have been called 'Strothers' before that

Yes, Bookland was two shops in one. Both of them had their own shop entrances but, once inside, you could walk straight through from one to the other. The stationers sold, fancy pens, greetings cards, artist materials, and toys like jigsaws and Airfix models. Was always a nice shop to go into at Christmas.
