It might be worth contacting Birmingham City Archives, to see if they can help you. (They night, for example, have kept phone directories from the period, enabling them to simply look up 'International Stores' to see if there was a branch listed in Alum Rock): archives.[email protected]birmingham.gov.uk

Thee certainly used to be a grocery chain called "International Stores" in the UK in the 1970s. I don't know if there was a branch in Birmingham (I've never lived in the Midlands) but there's other stores here:

Here's the history, there are some links to sites that may offer more.

We had an Internationals in Norbury, South London, but can't remember much about it as I was very young. Couldn't find it on bhg's link though. It was turned into a Sainsburys in the late 70s.
Yes there was. If I remember correctly it was opposite the indoor market
