The End of Woolworths


Wending home after a heavy night - it must have been at least 11pm - I saw the metal grilles had been left open at the door to Woolworths. The scene inside was pretty depressing (above).
Lots of speculation among us locals as to what this shop will become when the end finally arrives; Tesco and Sainsburys both said to be keen on what is, after all, a massive retail space on one of the busiest high streets in the country. Let's hope the staff get new jobs soon.

Went in myself there today to take a look. Sad and depressing. It gave me a strange feeling. And the only old Doctor Who they had going was one I already had!
