They have recently announced that the rear part of our old Woolies(next to M&S) in Fareham is to be a Next- opening by Christmas and that ' several large high st retailers' are interested in the front section, opposite Wilko and T K Maxx.
I'm pleased it's going to be Next as it's the main store that's been missing from the shopping centre

Woolies in West Wickham is going to be a Carpetright and it is right opposite another carpet shop so I cannot understand why as we are not a main town?

Our town centre is dead without Woolies. It's going to be an Iceland. You can't have a look around Iceland like you can have a browse round Woolies. Ours was always busy.

Just found out that our Clevedon branch is being turned into a "Proper Job" DIY store.

In this town, I give it a year before that closes too.

My local Woolies in Exeter is still empty. No plans to turn it into anything at the moment. It just stands there looking sorry for itself....

Wanstead one supposed to be a Tesco Express but they are having problems getting the alcohol licence. Been a petition by local residence and shopkeepers to stop them for getting a licence.

Lewisham Woolies is going to be an H&M, -am SO GLAD its not going to be another pound shop or chav/sports shop (as oppose to a proper sports shop like Runners Need) I do like H&M but could have done with something that wasn't the same as the rest of Lewisham high street- a bike (push bike) shop would have been fantastic...
