50 High Street, Stevenage, Herts SG1 3EB
Woolworths opened in Stevenage in 1939 on the High Street (what is now known as the Old Town). It was built as part of a small parade of shops.
Woolworths traded here for 20 years, before moving to a new location in Queensway – when a new shopping centre was built in 1959, as part of Stevenage New Town. This was store 1008 and will be covered in a separate blog post in the future.
Today Tesco Express is in the former Woolworths unit. In the photo you can see the whole parade of shops.
