St Leonards-on-Sea – Store 832

10/11 Kings Road, St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex TN37 6EA

There once was a Woolworths store at St Leonards-on-Sea, down the road from Hastings. It opened in the 1950s on Kings Road, quite close to St Leonards Warrior Square train station. It is on the right of the below photo – the building with the narrow arched windows.

I don’t know when it closed, but it wasn’t on the 2008 store list. Today the building is occupied by Kings Road Bazaar – quite appropriate as you could say Woolworths was sort of a bazaar of its own.

  1. I had no idea there used to be a Woolworths in King’s Road. I’ve no recollection of it; in the mid/late 1970’s I think that building was “House of Holland” shop selling garden furniture, tools and the like.

  2. The store appears as open on the 1972 store list, however it is missing from the 1995 list (which also contains a list of stores closed between 1985 and 1995, along with an addendum of stores closed between in 1983 and 1985. Who h would pinpoint the store closing between 1972 and 1982


    1. Thank you, that does sound about right.
