Apologies for taking so long to reply, That’s a great find! The tokens were issued in the 1930s and were given out to customers when they made a purchase, they provided the customer with a 1d discount on purchases made on Thursday mornings. Hope this helps!
My aunt was general manager of Pratts, I think in the 70’s? would love to know if anyone remembers her? Irene, she met her husband at Pratts 🙂
It would be lovely to have more information about Sheffield’s Cole Brothers. I still remember (just) when it was on Coles Corner – but we were blown away when the new Coles opened in 1963 – it was such a fantastic looking building (still could be) and the lovely green carpets and wooden fittings were a perfect cohesion of modern but special.
