Sheldon opened in the suburbs of Birmingham in 1963. There is very little information on the opening of the branch, except that an application was made for an off-licence in 1964.
The branch ceased trading on 29th January 1983, with many Partners saying goodbye to a firm set of friends as well as colleagues. Partners at Sheldon were intent on setting up an annual reunion, as the branch had had an active social life – one of its last social activities raised money for a local children’s hospital.
Branch Manager of Sheldon, Mr D J Irwin said that “Partners have shown high morale and committment in the lead up to closure.”
