  • The department store of a leftist co-operative is still owned by the workers today. The strips of exposed concrete recall other large structures such as Preston Bus Station, and the attempt to establish department store façades as trademarks (as with the Horten chain in Germany), however, it remained the only one of its kind.

  • Renovated / converted and expanded 1987–1989, in use
