I would be quite sad if Woolies disappear off the High Street, which I don't think they will. Let us all shop there and help save them from doom!!

i think people are blaming the monopolising supermarkets, think its a gonner to be honest. hope the staff can all stay in jobs in these tough times.

woolies might have been round a long time, but they no longer serve any purpose. They are not cheap, and range of products is poor. They have fell behind with current times

I do always go in there, I know people say they have no identity but then you could say that about anyone these days, i.e the supermarkets who no longer sell food but do everything including banking as well. I absolutely loath Tescos for example, and think they have spelt the end for many retailers and the local high street.

its a combination of things thats spelt the end of some retailers that havent had the guts to develop. supermarkets being dominant, internet sites like ebay and amazon have had their part to play also. only the strongest will survive, like mfi, dwindled like hell to competition from the likes of b&q and John Lewis.

You and me both, I hate the fact that theirs also a Tesco Express on virtually every street corner these days as well.

Some people are just too lazy these days and think oh what's the point in going down town when we can get everything from Tesco's.

Tesco's are virtually taking over Britain, They've killed the corner shops, How can they compete?

They've been on other retailers territory for a while now too.

They've admitted that they sell things below cost price just to get customers in store.

One day the only retailers you'll see are Tesco's and possibly other supermarkets if they can keep up with Tesco's.

Once they've took over they'll charge us what they like because their won't be any competition.

Wouldn't surprise me if Tesco's started their own political party and spiked our sausages so we vote them into power.

I will agree!

I've always found Woolies reasonable, it's alot cheaper than other stores round here, the goods have been good quality and it's convenient.
#16
Woolies have only been good for the rare bargain and fab dress-up outfits for kids.

I will agree!


Surely not the sausage bit?????????

Am I correct in thinking that Tesco's are one of the biggest land owners in the country, apparently they own loads of land whether they use it or not.

With revenues of £43bn and profits of £2.5bn, Tesco has a war chest to fund land acquisitions that is the envy of the corporate world. More than anything, land is key to creating a retail giant - without stores, there is no business. So it ought not to be surprising that the country's most powerful retailer is also among Britain's most powerful real estate companies; its portfolio is conservatively valued at £14.2bn.

and falling rapidly.

I think with tescos, they had the guts to try out other items apart from the food market and it paid off, they learned from that and have grown bigger and better. dont agree with the slogan britains biggest discounter though, so untrue.

LOL.

People are bashing tesco but that has also been around for almost 90 years. Should i choose the expensive woolworths a bus ride away over the tesco i can walk to which is cheaper? I don't think i will

I'd spend it quick, they may not even be still open by Christmas! Even if they are, they aren't getting any more stock in. So it will be leftovers by then

Woolworths are overpriced and have been going down hill for years.

Only time Ive got anything is when something has been reduced (and Ive seen it through here!!)
#30
Woolworths only have themselves to blame. They're a stagnant dinasaur who have failed to move with the times: they offer nothing that can't be bought elsewhere (and probably cheaper too); their branding is tired; the store layout is uninviting...I could go on.

I can't quite believe that I've heard a few suggestions in articles that they should be nationalised. Their poor business model is being exaggerated by this recession. And let's not forget that they had an offer on the table not too long ago that they refused.

The only (and major) downside to them going out of business is that 25K+ people will be without a job. They should be knocking down the doors of the board to get answers.

Yes, in St Albans they have owned land for nearly 10 years and were supposed to re-develop and make good the empty houses that stood on the land, but you guessed it, they have done NOTHING. At the time there was no planning given to them for building a supermarket, but you guessed it years later they have tried and failed and are now trying again. It is in the middle of a busy market town and it is just a very bad idea and everyone that lives there is vehemently opposed to it. The local paper keeps publishing a letter from one of their high-up Directors who keeps banging on about how great it will be for everyone. I DISAGREE.

But I do agree with the bit about spiked sausages!

I just think that if everyone no longer shops in their High Street we are in danger of seeing our high street shops disappear, Woolworths and all. And that means the end of CHOICE. :x

No choice on the internet? :roll:
#33
yes of course there is choice on the internet, but imagine if all your buying was restricted to sitting at home behind a computer? I know some people can't stand shopping but I can't imagine life without shops to go into and look at things "in the flesh" :-D
