The Resurrection of <span style="text-decoration: line-through;">Christ</span> Woolworths will be online
Just when you'd given up on finding another high street outlet that sold both swing-bin liners and A1 posters of Del Amitri, a ray of sunshine breaks through the wintry clouds on this Siberian Monday afternoon.
News reaches Bitterwallet via cnet that the Barclay brothers, who own both Littlewoods and the Telegraph, have snapped up the Woolworths brand. While there are no plans to re-open any high-maintenance shop fronts, they are planning to cash in on the massive brand awareness Woolies enjoys and relaunch Woolworths as an online retail store later this year.
No word yet on what the product lines will be, or indeed whether the online offering will mirror the bricks and mortar version of Woolworths in any way beyond the name.
