John McKillop was store manager at Nairn Woolworths from around 1992 to 1994. He tells us it was his first appointment as manager, and it was a fab little store, albeit a strange dog leg shape!

Nairn Woolworths closed in December 2008, and a hardware store called Nickel & Dime opened. I like to think the name is a tribute to the original Woolworths Five and Dime stores.
