Woolworths was great when I was a little lad. You could get all sorts of stuff there. Thread, scissors, paper, glue, novelties, sweets, hardware, kitchenware, toys - all the produce of Empire! Those who are old enough to remember it will have fond memories of the pick and mix counter! Nowadays its really gone downhill and they hardly stock anything useful. Even so, I thought this bloke took the disappointment a little too hard: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/cornwall/7005929.stm Wonder what he was looking for?
