Llanelli – Store 287

8 – 10 Vaughan Street, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire SA15 3UD

Woolworths opened in Llanelli, Wales, in 1927. It looks as though it was originally at 8 – 12 Vaughan Street and then cut down in size. The right side was sold and Dorothy Perkins occupied the space. The Woolworths store lasted until the end, closing in December 2008.

The unit was taken over by Poundworld who opened a Discount UK store, and then later they changed it to Bargain Buys. Dorothy Perkins became Store Twenty One. Now both companies are also bust so the whole unit from 8 – 12 is vacant again.
