Ghosts of Woolworths



Here's a hauntological project I wanted to do but which I couldn't possibly manage on my own ... but it's feasible now the collective resources of this blog can be brought to bear - what has happened to the Woolworths shop spaces since the chain closed? To start us off, here's a photo Dr Champagne took of the abandoned Woolworths in Ipswich last year ...

  2. Nothing will ever really replace Woolies' pick'n'mix.
    I'll post something soon.

  3. Sadly our local Woolworths is now a cryogenic food superstore (Iceland).

  4. Our local Woolies was swallowed into the earth, after which the concrete sealed up over the chasm. That's London Road for you.

  5. Clacton Woolies is now a 99p store, Walton Woolies is a Tesco Express. My eyes remain open.
