The first floor of the Co-op buildings has more recently been used to house the Polash Tandoori Restaurant but its original use remains somewhat mysterious.This photo shows a picture of a room on the first floor with a window facing onto Berry Lane. It is believed that this space was originally used as storage for the Tailoring department.
On the first floor of the original building there was also a Reading Room and Library, the entrance to which can be found on Barclay Road. What became of the space after its closure and whether this room was part of the Reading Room is unknown to us.
