Christmas at Woolworths through the years
First up, this musical gem from 1981 featuring the Goodies amongst others trying to flog us such gems as a Polaroid camera for £13.99 and Woolie's fabulous Chevron cassette range (Shakin' Stevens anyone?) Note though the tin of Quality Street going for £6.89! 27 years on and it's the same price at Asda - perhaps precisely the reason why Woolies is now sadly like to be no more. (That and the bloody annoying dog and sheep double-act!)
Two years on and 1983 saw cockney banjo-twanger Joe Brown tempting us with Old Spice aftershave, Bontempi organs and, just what every loved one wants at Christmas - a 6-pack of blank C90 cassette tapes!
RIP Woolies :o(
