I can’t believe Woollies has finally gone, after all these years.

No more pick-n-mix, parquet floors, oversized red & white carrier bags or beans on toast at the little cafe in the corner. It’s all quite sad really.


I know I’m a bit late on this one, but my brother put this photo on Facebook and I couldn’t resist using it (thanks Ian!)

Read more about the closure here and read this article which claims the closure was unnecessary . The inhabitants of Bognor Regis (that picturesque seaside resort we all know and love) are not happy because their town is now a ‘toy-less’ zone. Find out about Bognor’s grievances here (if you really have nothing better to do with your time!) On a mildly positive note, 51 of the old Woolworth’s stores have been bought by Iceland – so a thematic link there, around ‘winter woollies’ (groan).

Thanks for reading. Now get yourself down to W H Smith before it’s too late…
