Thank god Woolies has finally closed.They lost their way about 10 years ago,selling items of a flippant nature. Lets hope the premisses they vacate will be taken on by good retailers such as Wilkinsons,Iceland,Tescos,Aldi and lidl.I'm sure the staff will find better employ with these companies and the public will end up with more choice, win,win.

At least one of the companies you mentioned is considered to be at similar risk, infact there could be between ten and twenty high street chains on the way out!
This could reduce many town centres to derelict areas, which wont help communities already ruined by division, mistrust an crime.

Why ^Thank God?^ i totally disagree with you.
woolies were really good, it was sad to see them go, i cant believe that iceland are going to take over them, woolies were great for offers and they were a loyal shop, they should have never gone.

In answer to edwards comments,most of woolies long term staff did not find employment with one of these main retailer's Iceland to name and shame them, even though it was wideley publicised in the national press that they would emloy them. Just good publicity for them at the time, to seem a careing comunity spirited company,but now months and thousands of job losses along the way, they now say, that long term woolies staff are set in there ways,bit snobbish, you work in one shop, youv,e worked in them all!!!
