Tucked away in Lady Hayes Craft centre in Frodsham, Convoy isn’t the easiest Record Shop to reach but well worth the visit. There’s lots of interesting stuff at the Lady Hayes Centre and it’s in a nice location so you can make a bit of a day of it – you might even spot Tiswas/Spit The Dog legend Bob Carolgees who runs a shop there selling posh scented candles.
When you enter Convoy, even though it’s part of an antiques centre in a somewhat remote location you will find yourself in a fully fledged proper Record Shop as good as any you’ll find in a major city. Inside you’ll find well stocked racks full of very reasonably priced Vinyl on LP and 7″ and a good selection of CDs and main man Rupert behind the counter. There’s a broad range of stuff here, leaning mainly on the classic/collectable end of Rock and Pop but with most other genres covered and this being a second hand shop you never know what might turn up but Convoy can be relied upon to turn up good stuff – I’ve never left here empty handed that’s for sure. There’s also music memorabilia, posters, badges and related bits and bobs. A tip for any visitors – most shops put their less desirable stock in crates on the floor – not here..you will need to get down on your knees and go under the racks as there is there is some good stuff down there too.
*Important!* Rupert doesn’t take Credit or Debit cards and there is no cash machine on site so remember to stock up on paper money before visit as it’s highly likely you will be spending – and you are best to call ahead to check he’s open as hours can vary.
