164-168 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3DH
Woolworths opened their THIRD Glasgow store in the Charing Cross area in 1922. It was on Sauchiehall Street, backing onto Renfrew Street. The other Glasgow stores were Store 39 in Union Street and Store 118 in Argyle Street.
The store was reclad in tiles in 1936-6 to add a touch of style, in order to compete with Marks and Spencer’s striking new premises next door (Extract from Woolworth’s 100 Years on the High Street K. Morrison)

The store closed some time before 1972, as it is not listed on the store list of that year.
Very recently, some original signage was revealed at Renfrew Street – this photo was taken in 2015.
It has all gone now, and the store next to M&S, in the spot where Woolworths was, is now a souvenir shop called I Love Glasgow.
