Goodbye Woolworths

For me, Woolworths is happy memories of toys and plastics stretching back to when I was knee high to a pic’n’mix counter.

In 1988, Nanci Griffith penned a song I recall – “Rita was sixteen years, hazel eyes and chestnut hair. She made the Woolworths counter shine.”

The Woolworths UK website now declares itself “curently undergoing essential maintenance.”

Goodbye, Woolies.
