A sad farewell to Woolworths – clocking out at least for now after 99 years on 5 January 2009. The film features pictures of the original FW Woolworth & Co. Ltd. 3D and 6D Stores in Church Street, Liverpool in November 1909 and many pictures and video clips of the stores and people down the years as well as the CEO, Wooly and Worth and a Grandfather’s Clock. If you love Woolies, this one may make you cry. The filmmaker (one of the fallen) makes a cameo appearance, if you can spot him.
