A quick walk around the wonder of Woolies

The Christmas lights going up this morning. Later on the Gurnmeister had a stroll around Woolworths, hoping that it would still be in existence next week and that wasn't the last time ever inside the familiar store. Let us hope the lights in the Woolworth building will not be turned off before the Christmas lights go on. Once again a part of Nairn's retail landscape awaits the decision of others far away from the town.
Perhaps we should have a march to save Woolies? - only joking Spurtles.

If a few more folks had marched to Woolworths, they wouldn't be in the pickle they are. Problem is of course, that the 'few' more folks would have had to be a few more million !

I will do my little bit by stocking up on pick and mix first thing in the morning, sadly though, it appears I may not be able to do so for much longer.

Love it, or hate it,a High street without Woolies will be a sadder place, and it may well be only be the first of the empty properties appearing over the next year or so.

I do hope that Woolworth's shareholders are successful in saving the company and that we retain the Nairn branch. Woolworth's stores in a town like Nairn are probably more important to customers than those in larger places where there is more shopping choice. Without Woolies on the High St I for one will be left with little option but to drive afar to obtain some goods (And I don't mean pick and mix!)
