Is there any significance in the Woolworths website being offline for "essential maintenance"?

Dover has always been a crap town. With or without Woolies. We're undergoing a regeneration at the mo. I like to think it will be an improvement but i have my doubts. The only thing that will improve the town is bulldozing down the whole town and starting all over again.

Ooooh, that either makes Manchester VERY shit or very good.

According to BBC News, the online side of business has been shut down.

Theo Paphitis is currently sniffing round the rotting corpse, seeing if he can do anything with it.

Looks like the people of Evesham are worried about the future of their store.
Don Thompson, of Broadway Road, said: “It was quite a surprise. It seems ashame. It is a well known name, it must be worth millions. If it was to close it would be ashame as it pulls people into town. It is another nail in the coffin of Evesham.”

That's almost a shame but their only worthwhile service was pretty much handled by HP Snapfish I doubt many will miss it.

Who's next? We should be having a sweepstakes board set up in the Secret Forum.
