Bilston – Store 349

88 – 94 Church Street, Bilston, Staffs WV14 0AZ

Woolworths opened in Bilston in 1928. It was on Church Street, though I can’t find a photo of the original store. From this photo, we can guess they had a makeover in the 1960s and extended the size of the store.

Some time later the front was changed to be a row of windows and one entrance on the right side.

The store closed after the chain went bust in December 2008, and today Argos is in the building.
