14 – 15 Market Place, Retford, Notts
Woolworths opened in Retford in 1928 on Market Place. It took the place of Marshall & Son and they put up a new building.
In this photo you can see how central the Woolworths store was, and it’s nice to see the 1950s cars.

The store lasted until the end, closing in January 2009.
It became a Store 21, who also went bust. Today it is Poundstretcher, with what look like the original Woolworths doors and tiles painted red.
