I don't mind admitting I do, especially the winter wonderland adverts on tv

Maybe it doesn't feel like Christmas because its only the 1st of December......
#10

#11

woolies was minging...mine was like a filthy jumble sale..and Im glad its gone


Not every one was the same, and you cant blame it in the last few years when they were losing a lot of money.

My local one was nice and another 40 miles away whereI lived on and off for years had one on 2 floors that was great! used to get good games and dvds(and videos at the time) there and good bargains.

I think that idea is like someone voting a say a blu ray deal cold because they havent got a blu ray player.

Iapologise I like the shops I go into to be clean....with things ON shelves...not the floor...


So why shop in Primark? That's even worse than woolies :lol:

jellybaby22
pleased to say I wouldnt go in one of those shops if you paid me....but it would be better than woolies.....:p


But you recommend that others do :p

Btw agree, woolies were a skank pit. Faversham, Ashford, Chatham, Gillingham. All the same. **** holes.

For me it's family.

I do miss it
#19
Anyway, the main reason i'm glad it's gone is it was replaced by a true bargain warehouse :whistling:

nah youve lost me now like........this thread is opinions...no?
that was mine.....apologies Im not in the woolies appreciation society.......:roll:
and fyi...ALL the woolies I have ever been in were minging jumble sales......
Iapologise I like the shops I go into to be clean....with things ON shelves...not the floor...where the staff look like the are vaguely interested in serving you :)


I didnt think Woolies was perfect but I am saying you have judged an entire company on the little you have seen.

The ones I saw needed modernising and there was a certain amount of annoying staff but if you want "quality" like Debenhams go in there and dont complain about somewhere you had no interest of going in and I have never been in one that was like a jumble sale so it probably depends on your local area and says more about that then the store.

So you dont go shopping for the family at christmas..........

No, christmas is christmas, not a shop ? It doesn't feel like christmas yet because it isn't. The decorations aren't up, in my house anyway and in my local towns, and few have lights up near me, even on lower morden lane http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00YUVZicHik

Although adverts have been advertising christmas for a while now it won't feel like christmas until a week or two when it draws closer

always thought wollies was over priced myself,apart from the many people who sadly lost their jobs its no great loss

Woolworths was a dump that sold rubbish. Hardly merry or warm. Shopping in Bath is a lovely rustic experience.

Missing woolworths is tragic.
