The Galleries, Broadmead, Bristol, Avon BS1 3XB
In October 1991, a new shopping centre called ‘The Galleries’ opened in Bristol – and Woolworths occupied a corner on the ground floor. This Woolworths replaced the original store (Broadmead – Store 10) that was demolished to make way for building the shopping centre.

Although it was a large unit, people say it was a shadow of its former Bristol store, and without a cafe! Still it traded here for a good 17 years until closure in December 2008. Here is a photo I took when visiting Bristol in 2009:
In 2010, a Family Bargain store opened in its place (a sister brand of the 99p stores). They traded here for 2 and a half years, and then closed as it was a short-term lease and a larger 99p store had opened on the top floor.

In December 2014, Bargain Buys (who are owned by Poundland) moved in. Here is it today:
