Jeeeeeeeesus!
OMG that brings back memories! I remember the black ADS-Anker tills that they still had until the late 90's. Also quite telling that many/most Woolworths stores still had that shopfit and signeage up to when they closed down 2 years ago - kindof makes you realise how tired they had become, and why it wasn't a complete surprise that they fell.
I wanted the neon Music & Video sign they had in the store in Nottingham! Must have been there since the 80s, and was still there right until they closed. If I'd gone down on the last day I'd probably have been able to get it cheap with them selling off he fixtures and fittings too.

Woolworths in Peckham kept their 80s 'Record Bar' until the very end.

No a fake Twitter account has been set up and all of the clickbaits have gone along with it without fact checking, including the Sun and Mirror.

Including referring to themselves as “Woolsworths” several times.
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.
