    What no Leicester????

    There were two guys measuring the sign outside our store, I assume they have bought the store already?

    I wonder IF any stock left will go to the other stores still open?

    Not ours we have an Iceland round the corner. Someone else mentioned that Tesco wanted a few of the toen centre locations to use as Express or Metro stores, but not sure how true that is.

    went in last week to mine and hated seeing all the empty shelves

    I heard that tesco bought over some aswell but didn't believe it as there is already to many tescos and asda's around.

    I think 5th Jan is the final, final day.

    I thought that closed down last year anyway - well the one in the centre opposite Gap?:?

    ..apparently a few of the stores have food licenses so those ones will prob end up being bought by some of the supermarkets..tesco metro or siansburys local etc!!

    Maybe we will get lucky and get a Primark! (Cant see it though)

    Our's is not on the list either. Will be in Hanley that day though & that is closing. Great shame but will of course try to get a bargain.

    Woolworths don't actually own most of their stores, they just rent them so any buyers are unlikely to be buying them off Woolworths.

    i said well over a year ago that tesco would take over the world and they would kill all the retail businesses. everyone thought i was mad. im such a psychic

    I reckon they should all re-open as Wetherspoons!!!

    With woolworths relaeted names

    eg.

    The Chad Valley
    The pic 'n' mic tavern
    The Ladybird

    i was in woolies the other day.
    made me lol so i left before i got chucked out

    Just as well ours is closing - its got nowt left in it.

    Its just like one big echoing cavern
