    Anyone else miss it? I've realised since its been gone how useful it was:dohh: When I was buying easter eggs it took me HOURS to find one, usually I would have just went to Woolworths, now I want a multipack of polos to see if they stop morning sickness but apart from Tesco which is miles away I dont know where to get some from:hissy:

    I found the website confusing to use you never had enough options to narrow searches etc but hopefully it will be a nice relaunch :D I miss Woolies too it wasn't often but the very few shops we have here Woolies, Wilkos and Boots were my main shops where I knew I could get something I liked and always hit Woolies for the toys!

    How odd, I was only thinking about Woolworths this morning! I was wondering where Ladybird clothing got sold off to? I loved buying clothes for my nieces and godaughter from there. It was great for little fancy dress outfits! x

    Did people seriously have problems finding easter eggs? They we're absolutely everywhere!!!

    I can't say i miss woolworths, i rarely went in there tbh, i'd but the occasional cd or dvd and then only when they we're in the sale as they we're expensive for them otherwise!

    I miss woolies, I loved their kiddies clothes, toys, and general stuff. It was local too so if we needed anything 9 times out of 10, woolies had it.
