    Default Woolworths virtual Museum

    Stumbled across this today - http://museum.woolworths.co.uk/

    Thought it might interest you guys/gals.

    (I did a search and it returned nothing so apologies if it's been posted before)

    Alas, a far cry from what most Woolworth's are like these days



    This was the Woolies I grew up with. Three floors; it had a bit of everything!

    Yep it is/was Harlow. The other week I noticed a tiny little Woolworths sticker inside the sleeve of my old Star Wars soundtrack LP with the name of the assistant that served me and the date I bought it - 22nd August 1977 - my 13th birthday. Brought the wonder of Woolies right back to me

    Looks like they've pulled the plug - leads to an empty page now and the main site has its Down for Essential Maintainance notice up !

    Poor old Woolies......
    (was on last night's News, most stores will be closed by the end of the month)

    Yes I went back to check on their war memorial and it wasn't working.
    The one in Harlow had a restaurant downstairs with orange and yellow hanging lights on black bars and black and white horse sculpture on the wall. There was an old upright till just by that bit. I can't remember what they sold downstairs it might have been haberdashery and hairslides but the main floor had groceries at the back part.
    Upstairs was clothing and plimsols.

    I don't remember Harlow selling fresh meat but Clacton did. They all used to have tiled entrances and chrome handles with the W and a lot had wooden floors.

    I went to the opening of the Bishop's Stortford one when it closed the original and moved a few doors along into a bigger building. It was opened by Don Estelle and Windsor Davies from it ain't arf hot mum. I had a signed single of whispering grass from that day.

    Much later I got roped in for a what do you think of session about the store.

    Downstairs in the big Harlow Woolworths was (as much as I can remember) hardware (tools etc.) as well as the restaurant. I'm sure there was more but I can't remember. I was more interested in the toys on the top floor
