Marks and Spencer in Wood Green took its customers on a trip down memory lane to celebrate 100 years of trading in the area.
Yesterday the the shop, in High Road, treated its customers to live music and a food tasting as part of a day exploring the store's history.
The company's first Penny Bazaar opened in 1914 in Cheapside, but was replaced in 1926 by new premises in High Road.
This was extended in 1930 and again in 1938, when it became one of the company's first to open a cafe bar.
M&S had a giveaway throughout the day which include retro-style M&S bags, postcards of the front of the store as it looked in 1930 and packets of Percy Pigs.
There was also an exhibition including historic products and a replica 1949 staff uniform.
