Woolworths set to return to the high street next year

One of Britain’s most dearly missed retailers is making an unexpected comeback next year.

Woolworths says it is returning to the high street with three trial stores due to open late 2021.

The store, famous for its pick ‘n’ mix sweets, children’s clothes, homewares, CDs and DVDs went into administration in 2008 and closed all of its UK stores by January 2009.

In an announcement this morning on the newly made Woolworth UK Twitter account, the retailer said: ‘Here to save 2020! Woolworths is coming back to your high street, as a physical store!

‘A couple of legal things to get sorted, but we’re full steam ahead at Woolworths HQ.

‘We want to get this right, so we need your help. What do you want at your UK #YourWoolworths?’

The store, affectionately known as Woolies, said there would be more announcements throughout the week and chances for shoppers to win prizes.
