I am sorry to see Woolworths go - it was part of my childhood, and somewhere I could always pop in to get those odd handy things you can't get anywhere else. Easter eggs, last minute Christmas present DVDs, a cheap mobile phone, and of all things, a plastic sheet for wrapping my shedding Christmas tree in so that I can put it outside without too much damage.
Perhaps, like many others, I should have gone more often. Then again, the management is not blameless - the image was hopelessly old fashioned and the layout confusing.
Boots, another institution, moved with the times. Woolworths didn't. But I'll miss it.

FW WOOLWORTHS is a legend that wont die i set up the FW WOOLWORTHS APPRECIATION SOCIETY to get woolies back on every high street in the uk. People loved woolworths when stores were closing in north walsham, cromer, sheringham and fakenham people were very upset and in tears at the thought WOOLWORTHS was closing. WE NEED WOOLWORTHS AS I REMEMBER THE HUGE FW WOOLWORTHS STORE IN NORWICH IT SOLD EVERYTHING HAS A RESTURANT AND YOU GOT GREAT DEALS AT CHRISTMAS. WE WONT LET WOOLIES GO WE ARE FIGHTING TO BRING IT BACK. NO MORE BIG W, WOOLWORTHS LOCAL OH NO ITS FW WOOLWORTHS ITS WELL WORTH BRINGING BACK THE WONDER OF WOOLWORTHS TO EVERY HIGH STREET IN THE UK .
