It was the high street store what sold anything and everything and then in 2008 it was closed due to the recession but now Woolworths might be making a come back to the UK high street.
Former store director Tony Page has approached Shop Direct to buy the name back and bring back the much loved store.
He has said that he would bring back Woolies n a “similar format” but would place stores more at the “heart of the communities” rather than major shopping centres.
“I am still emotionally attached to it,”
“I still think it has got a role in the future.
“I have contacted Shop Direct and said ‘you’re not using the brand anymore, would you consider giving it to someone who would?'”
The shop closed due to being £400 million of debts forcing it’s 800 plus stores to close down in 2008 and the high street has never been the same again.
Lets hope that it makes it’s return soon.
