    Most used phrase of the year so far!!!!!

    Aww, Woolies would have had that!!! Had a guy at my work asking me where to buy Dylon to dye his jacket as he'd rubbed some marks out and taken out half the colour in the process. i couldn't think of any shop in our town centre that sold the stuff. Good old Woolies did though, i miss that shop!

    I was honestly thinking a similar thing the other day, it is such a loss coz you could always rely on them to have inane objects that you always need and cant get anywhere else!

    we don't have a wilkinsons up here :cry:

    Pyrex stuff!

    Can't seem to get it anywhere on the high street,

    was looking for a measuring jug the other day - no woolies, no jugs!

    Your town centre must suck. I can't think of anything they sold that i can't get elsewhere.

    Yes we miss Woolies but being realistic what we miss is somewhere we could get stuff cheap. Look at the average spend of the Woolies shopper and it isn't hard to see why the store struggled to pay its overheads. In its day it was the biggest retailer of music and video but then the internet came along and it lost most of its turnover to online shoppers. Maybe if they had changed the way they operated as the markets around them changed they may have survived. The sad reality is that the type of business it used to be was not a viable business for today's shopper and it hung on to yesterdays way of doing business too long.
