Businesses in Manchester
« on: Wednesday 06 October 21 15:19 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find information about a family business in Manchester, England.

Riding's Stores Ltd was founded by John Riding (1893-1961), and he was my partners great uncle. How can I find more information about the business?

Not sure at what information you were wanting about the business but there are heaps of adverts for it in the papers.
