Cargo Abingdon NOW OPEN

It would be interesting to find out what stores have moved in where Woolworths used to be. The only three I know are Cargo in Abingdon (pictures here), New Look in Solihull, and Tesco Extra in Ulverston.

Cargo have some opening offers, and have taken over all of the store. However they have not done a lot of work transforming the store so this could be a temporary arrangement.

I was in Witney yesterday and the Cargo there has closed while they redevelop the Woolgate Centre. The Witney Blog says that when it re-opens in 2010 it will be in a larger store. Cargo will also be opening another store in Oxfordshire and 6 more nationally over the next few months.

I should have said the work on Ock Street is mostly on the pavement so should not cause great delays, and on Friday and Saturday there is a sale of pictures painted by Abingdon Artists at Saint Nicolas church, as well as the Craft Fair at the Old Abbey Buildings.

I believe they're getting an 'Allworths' in the ex-Woolworths store in Didcot. Apparently being run by the original Woolworths store manager (but I could be wrong!).

Not sure, but someone said it was due to open first week in November.

Ringwood, in Hampshire - we've got an Iceland in place of dear old Woolies, for our sins.

Cargo can stock overpriced tittle tattle at times. We need something to serve the Abingdon community better, a large Ann Summers for example.
