Z is for Zuri Designs
Zuri Designs are one of the first retail units to have opened in the premises of the former Pitt & Nelson public house in Ashton-under-Lyne.
The Pitt and Nelson pub on the corner of Market Street and Old Street was one of the oldest pubs in Ashton, dating from 1685, when this corner was the junction of the roads from Manchester and Oldham. Originally it was The Smithies Arms then The Grapes and The White Hart. It became the Pitt and Nelson in 1807, shortly after the deaths of Admiral Lord Nelson and Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger. It closed sometime after 1989 and was later re-born as The Bedroom night club. After various troubles its license was revoked and the building remained boarded up for about two years.
I don't know anything about Zuri Designs as I'm not into fashion.
