Morecambe Woolworths (Seafront) – Store 751

Marine Road Central, Morecambe, Lancashire LA4 4BU

Woolworths opened in Morecambe in 1939. This was the second Woolworths in this seaside town, just a 10 minute walk from the first (Store 408) which opened in 1930. The newer seafront store had an eye-catching art deco frontage.
