The Vokins department store was a mainstay of the Brighton retail scene for over one hundred years until its closure in the 1997. The archive includes a wide variety of records: photographs, documents, press cuttings, ledgers, plans, and correspondence. These relate to staff, sales, stock, store development and promotion. As a case study of an independent provincial department store, the Vokins material provides an invaluable source for scholars interested in urban and local history, retailing and consumption.
