22 – 26 Charing Cross Mansions, St Georges Road, Glasgow G3 6UJ
Woolworths opened their third Glasgow store in 1922. The first store was on Union Street (Store 39) and the second on Argyle Street (Store 118), which also opened in 1922. This store was on the Charing Cross side of Glasgow, backing on to Renfrew Street.
It wasn’t a purpose-built building, they opened in the existing Charing Cross Mansions. The below photo shows a sweet scene, it looks like a father and son looking through the shop window.

The store traded from this location for about 50 years before closing in the early 1970s.
Very recently, some original signage was revealed at Renfrew Street (the back of the store) – and it is still there today. It’s literally at the end of Renfrew Street where it becomes Buccleuch Street. You can see it on Google Streetview, but why don’t you go to Glasgow and take a look at it!!

Going by Streetview and comparing with the 1930s photos above, the building the housed the front of Woolworths still exists and today it is two units – a traditional toy shop (very appropriate) called The Big Top and a cafe called Tinderbox.
