It's a sad day for the City of York.
News just in that Woolworths on Coney St is closing down a week on Saturday. After that, there will be no Woolworths in York. The one in Monks Cross closed a year or so ago and now the city centre branch is closing down.
York will be a nowhere-ville.
Any town worth its salt has a Woolworths. I was in Abingdon recently. It has a Woolworths. Even f**king Knaresborough has a Woolworths. But York now won't.
I don't even like Woolworths, especially the way they always put fake cases out on the shelves for DVDs, CDs, games and so on. That's pissed me off since I was a kid. But losing it is like losing a veruca you've grown fond of.
A sad day.
