So it's farewell to Woolies. After all those years selling us stuff they have finally gone bust. I went in the one in Brighton on its last day and it was a bit sad to see them selling off everything, even including the tables and chairs from the cafe. The trouble is, what were Woolworths about in the end? Most big towns have got a Robert Dyas, a toy shop and a record shop these days. That takes away half of the customers who visited Woolworths.
Unfortuantely, thanks to the credit crunch Hove is now without a record shop, toy shop or a Woolworths!!! and no, Fine Records and Tescos do not count as record shops.
