    My woolworths store is being taken over by.....

    I work for Woolworths and would like to know who is taking over other stores. So if you know please post and let me know.

    My Woolworths store in Wanstead, East London has been taken over by Tesco and will soon become a Tesco Express.

    hmmm, well there is no way on this planet, Tesco will get in our town, … hmmm, well there is no way on this planet, Tesco will get in our town, they tried for nearly 12 years, weren't allowed, we ended up with Sainsbury's for goodness sake!!! Our town loves a charity shop mind you, so maybe another one of those:w00t: Or chemists, they're big on those too:p either that or some useless gift shop, where people look but never buy:thumbsup:



    Many people have told me Tesco have been trying for years to get into Wanstead, they finally have succeeded.

    Woolworths in Chiswick High Road (london) has been converted into Waitrose.

    Funny thing was there used to be a waitrose there about 15 years ago, before a very large Sainsburys was built and waitrose closed down because it lost a lot of business. Now it's back :whistling:

    Iceland are taking some apparently...not the country, they're broke too

    perhaps they need to put a jobcentre in the woolworth sites,,,,,,,,,,,with some jobs in that would be novel lol

    I would reckon asda will be after many of woolworths locations-they have a dedicated team to set up asdas equivalent of tesco express stores and they have a target of 200 by the end of 2009-this is asdas main expansion policy this year and there is a lot of money behind it-the only way they can achieve this number is to either buy over a small grocery chain or go after woolworth premises.

    One near us is gonna be a sex shop!!

    Well worth it!!!!

    The Woolworths in Darlington is slap bang in the middle of the town centre, god only knows who'll move in??

    Op, too far for me but thanks for the info :thumbsup:

    Hmm. Id imagine a Tesco Express in place of our local Woolworths would do quite well.

    A small format asda is just a horrible thought......
