St Ives – Store 863

35-37 Fore Street, St Ives, Cornwall TR26 1HF

Woolworths arrived in the Cornish seaside town of St Ives in the mid-1950s. The building they chose was set in a hill by the harbour, with the front facing the busy shopping area of Fore Street, and the back facing the harbour on Wharf Road.

Here is the front of the store on Fore Street.

  2. I worked there Apr. – Nov.1979. Manager was Adrian Atkins if I recall correctly.
    Would love to hear from anyone working then. I’d be notified of your post.
