Good Times Just around the Corner


Hester commented two days ago that there are signs of change in the Woolworth's door - the one round the corner.

It is not so much the Street Fair poster - the best adverts for that are the yellow traffic signs on every approach into the town warning that the Street Fair is on from Monday 5th October to Tuesday 6th -

No, the good news is this notice concerning a new Store Opening in Abingdon, presumably taking up some, but not all, of the vacant Woolworths Store. Cargo left Abingdon early last year to be replaced by Londis. But Cargo Home Shop are on their way back. I believe that Scottish Widows bought up the vacant Woolworths premises from the receivers earlier in the year to add to the rest of the Abbey Shopping Centre.

Small Print: Scottish Widows seem to be doing a good job. I only hope they are looking after their smaller - long standing tennants who have faithfully served the town through the bad times and ought to be there to profit from the good times just around the corner.

I also noticed yesterday that the gallery in Stert street is having work done inside and looks like it might become a bridal shop.

Yes. Fantasia Bridal in Ock St has a sign up saying it is moving to 34 Stert St - this must be the ex-gallery.
