1-2 King Street, Gravesend, Kent DA12 2ED
Woolworths opened in Gravesend in 1916, though the address is not confirmed anywhere.
In 1957 Woolworths moved to numbers 1 – 2 King Street, replacing Bryant and Rackstraw, the haberdashers who are said to have been there for 100 years. Previous to that, this was a pub called the Prince of Orange.
There was a fire in August 1966, which is photographed below.
The store closed on 19th December 2008.

The building remained empty for a year, and then a store called Life & Style moved in. They closed down a year later. Then it became a Poundworld Plus. Then DiscountUK. And finally a Bargain Buys which it still is today.
