    I really feel for the staff on this. Screw you guys, the shareholders are still getting paid.

    It was mainly overpriced crap but you couldn't beat it for cheap soft drink deals and sweets! Ideal as it was on the way to the cinema :D

    I can't see this being a successful venture, the point of woolworth's was that it was always there on the high street when you needed it.

    Seriously hope nobody is stupid enough to supply goods to this half arsed idea.
    Woolies died 15 years ago when they chaged their focus and revamped the stores to do more entertainment products and cut down on the cheap an cheerful basics they used to do well, it's just been coughing up blood ever since until this Christmas when they finally breathed their last.

    I for one will not mourn their passing as they have been ridiculously overpriced and rubbish for ages. Die in peace? Rather just forget about them.

    woolworths went under purely because of the pick'n'mix... i don't think any sweets were ever actually bought, they were always pinched :)

    We do work for Just Sweets who owned all the sweet racks and sweets in the stores they've been hit really hard by this, tbh Just let it die I didn't buy from the shop and unless they do something special with the online side I personaly am not gonna buy there either.
