When I lived in Wharfedale until 2002, this was the Co-Operative department store. According to a press report online, it had closed down on 7 April 2012 after 151 years of a Co-Op store on the site. SD9851 : Westgate, Skipton shows the other side of the store when it was open. The presence of large Morrisons and Tesco stores nearby was no doubt a major factor in its demise.
