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.

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.
