It looked relatively unchanged 40 years later in 1961, and it looks like there were some weighing scales in front of the doors.

In the 1970s the store was modernised and it looked like this until the end, closing on 30th December 2008.

M&Co moved in, and they changed to front – almost to how Woolworths looked when it first opened in 1929.
