No HMV, No Game and you would say no to the Women. Apparently my town was voted 3rd in the ugliest women in the UK. lol

I TOTALLY miss woolworths !!, I even have dreams that i was still shopping with them (epecially when they had the last week sales!!!)

I don't miss them but my dad does. I think its more of a generation thing - I get my stuff online and he on the street!

Depends where you live - though the internet is as big a reason for Woolies closure as any. I live in an area where Woolworths had become redundant. You could buy nearly every item at Tesco if you have one.

I stopped using Woolworths years back, I used to pop into the Slough branch literally once every six months if I was there - but only to look and see if there were any instore DVD bargains.

The shops were a mess, prices were uncompetitive. Most of the employees were Orcish, OAP's - or spotty languid teenagers - not being funny but people it seems, just didn't want it anymore.

Besides, they get all those types working at Tesco's now if they're missed :giggle:
