Walworth – Store 82

367 – 369 Walworth Road, London SE17 2AL

Woolworths opened their 82nd store in 1919 in Walworth, South East London. Unfortunately there are no photos online of this store. It did exist, as it is mentioned in the Woolworths Museum.

The store closed on 20th January 1990.

The store at the address today is Argos, which you can see below. The building itself matches the rest of the shopping parade, so this was a store where Woolworths did not change the architecture.
