Woolworths opened in the market town of Spalding in 1928. Sadly just 13 years afterward, the store was badly hit in WW2.

Woolworths picked themselves up and quickly put up a temporary store in the shell.

A permanent store was built after the war, and they traded here until the end, closing for good in January 2009.

In this photo you can have a better look at how the whole building looked, the upper floor being a quite recognisable 50s style of Woolworths architecture.

After closure, it became a Store Twenty One, which then closed. Today it is Charmed Interiors.
