Where Woolies Was - photos of your local Woolworths
It's only September, but the whorish commercialisation of the season means Christmas is no longer a pleasingly distant proposition. It's just not going to be the same this year though, now we've no Woolworths on the high street to shuffle around. But what has become of our favourite childhood haunts since they hit the wall last Christmas? Folk have been discussing that topic in the HUKD forums. Some established brands have picked up large numbers of sites, others have been picked up by independent business while plenty remain deserted.
Mark Hillary took this photo of Woolies in Camden in July - but what about the rest of them? We fancy putting together a gallery of former stores in their various states of death and rebirth. Next time you're popping out, take a photo and email it to [email protected] - it'll be more fun than photographing yellow labels in Tesco. There might even be a prize for the best.
