I read about the imminent closure a while ago (probably in the Star..). Bob Foster had retired to Spain years ago and the family stated it was the end of an era.  I used to deal with them in the 70's when my then husband used them in his business. It'll be in the Star archives if anyone wants to look

Sad to hear that Robbob, I didn't know. I used to enjoy talking to him when he was home. His dad was a friend of my dad and we used to buy our diy things from the shop. Did'nt he have a brother who had a place in North Road?
