Camberwell – Store 310

56 – 60 Denmark Hill, Camberwell, London SE5 8RZ

Woolworths opened their 310th store in Camberwell, South London. It was on Denmark Hill, and going by the look of the upper floor in these photos, it had a makeover in the 1950s. You can see the updated store in the centre right of this photo.

Over the years we can see the fascia was updated with newer Woolworths logos, but the windows look original from the thin black metal framework, and the doors are wooden. A lot of the comments on Facebook mention memories of the wooden floors inside, how noisy they were to walk on.

After closure it was a 99p store for a short while. Then it became a Peacocks store, but today the unit is vacant once more.
