Well history repeats itself, this time the high street Goliath Woolworths has been slain by the recession's chief stone thrower David in a game of twister that no one saw coming.
Well, I didn't see it coming. I'm sure financial people and woolie bosses saw it coming. But honestly I can't remember the last time I went in to woolworths to get anything that didn't contain sugar.
It's a shame, because it's like saying goodbye to a bit of my childhood, and not a part I wanted to say goodbye to like those abuse filled visits to my uncle Ed's basement... but I digress.
Xmas shoppers however rejoice at Woolie's death, as we can get some good bargains in time for christmas. So now all my friends and family who read this...well no one reads this really, but if they did, they'd have ruined the suprise of opening up a big present and finding it full of woolies pick and mix.
Who'se next though? WH Smiths? Boots? Anne Summers? The Lego Shop in the bullring!?!?
Personally I blame the Somalian Pirates, I think they've got something to do with all this.
