Czarina labels

To compete with the buying power of the larger retail groups developing, many of these family stores had joined a buying and marketing group like the ISA -Independent Stores Association with the Czarina brand name.A large range of products throughout the stores had the Czarina brand label on them. This organisation was later to become Associated Independent Stores - AIS and there are still many family run department stores who are part of it. The Czarina logo was also used on advertising, bags and the back of sales bills.

Memos

Memo and Instruction headers (image does not enlarge) used for internal memos and important instructions

Instead of using photocopiers for producing memos and other staff documentation a "Roneo" stencil would be made and duplicated on a Roneo machine. No doubt had the company not sold out in 1978 there would have been a change to modern photocopying.
