I worked at the Northfield, Newtown & Kings Heath branches in the early 70s, great bunch of lads & girls, You could instal a brand new TV for £2.00Anyone out there who used to work for "COLLIS" Radio & TV. Wolverhampton and West midlands.
I did during the '60's/70's and would love to catch up with others who did.
That was a great design John, when using for private use over weekends and holidays we used to unbolt the roof sign from inside the van (Blue Hillman imps)I used to do all the shop signs and vehicle signs.
I worked at the Litchfield branch of Collis Radio as a TV field engineer in the late sixties to early seventies for five years or so. The shop manager when I first started was Malcolm Woodward-Bennet followed by Pete Avery then Graham Felton. The service team was headed up by the manager Harry Booker, engineers were Graham Wood, Tony Marsden, Mervyn ..... myself and Bench Engineer Ron. There was also an engineer Mike ....who emigrated to Canada and sold me his AVO 8 for a fiver which I still have. If you drew the short straw and got the Burton on Trent run it was around a hundred miles a day and twenty calls. Still I enjoyed every minute of it. Collis was a great employer, pay and conditions were among the best in the trade which gave a lot of deserved loyalty to the company. Happy days and fond memories!
