Nottingham’s Black Business’ in the 1960’s…

Continuing with WISA magazine donated by Mr Powe, this blog features two advertisements for black business’s; Alecs Continentals which was situated on Woodborogh Road and Mitchell Continental store on 79-83 Union Street. We are proud to say that The Mitchell store one of the oldest black Business’s in Nottingham is still in business and has expanded into a chain. Mr Mitchell senior has passed away but his legacy and the business is kept alive by his family one store being ran by his son Colin Mitchell on Alfreton road and the other by his daughter Claudette on Ilkeston road.
