Re: The Pubs of Accrington

Before it was Marnita, it was PV tubes, suppliers of valves and electrical components, mainly to the TV trade but also to electronic hobbyists such as me. It was run by a woman called maybe Sylvia or Sheila, not entirely sure. It became Marnita when the bottom fell out of the TV rental market. I think they did sell computers for a while but it wasn't one of the places I dealt with after they ditched the components.
