Woolworths blog begins revealing plans for online revival
We told you last month about the online resurrection of Woolworths after the Barclay brothers, who own both Littlewoods and the Telegraph, bought the rights to the brand name, rather than the physical stores themselves.
While the new site remains under construction, a Woolworths blog has appeared to report on what's occurring behind the scenes.
The site won't confirm or deny exactly what it'll be selling, other than to say they will sell "the products Woolworths is famous for". So Transformers, handcloths and overpriced CDs, then? Probably not; so far they've confirmed the return of the Ladybird clothing range, although they're keeping schtum where the pick'n'mix is concerned (despite there being an image depicting as much in the right hand corner of the screen).
From the look and feel of the site and the scant few answers to customer's questions, it seems that woolworths.co.uk will be a leaner operation with a more focussed proposition - that may come as a disappointment to the loyal customers already filling the comments with love for their local store.
