    The end of an era…

    So Woolworths has now closed all of it’s stores and business operations across the UK.  It’s been something which has been accepted badly, nobody wanted to see it happen but nobody could save it.  It’s a funny old thing; business.  Sometimes things just don’t work out.

    This store has now closed.

    This store has now closed.

    We’ve seen a corporation which has existed for ninety-nine years crumble and all it’s stores end up as a cavernous wreckage of memories and regret.  It brings a tear to my eye to see my local Woolworths closed and empty, even the sign on the outside has been removed, leaving just a stained brick pattern behind it.

    There are now twenty-seven thousand people left jobless and hopeless, this climate of economical challenge has certainly made it’s mark.  I just wonder to myself which business will be next.

    But… If anyone is interested I have a six foot high Woolworths sign for sale at a very reasonable price…
