Britton's shop gained a good reputation and continued into the 1970s.

By the 1990s the shop had become the YE OLDE FLOWER SHOP. An eye catching bold, modern design replaced the traditional shop front. It was noted for its impressive pavement display of flowers, fruit and vegetables.

In the Noughties the shop closed and was converted into two flats.
