It is 50 years since Cole Brothers moved from Cole’s Corner to Barker’s Pool – now customers can record their memories for a digital time capsule.

Despite being called John Lewis since 2002, Cole Bros remains a well known name in Sheffield.

To mark the anniversary, staff and shoppers are being invited to contribute to a film about the store.

MD James Prince said: “Not a week goes past without a customer coming up to me or writing me a letter telling me how long they’ve shopped here, and what an important part of their lives it was as they grew up.

“There are customers who have shopped with us since being pushed around in their prams. It’s important we capture these real-life stories.”

A videographer will be in the store on Tuesday, August 20, to film people for the time capsule.
