They traded here for 36 years, closing on 3rd June 1989.

Today you will find Vision Express and McDonalds here. You can see to the right of the building is the shopping centre. It was not in the 1975 photo as it was built in the 1980s over the former railway station.

Next time you’re having a cheeseburger at Welwyn Garden City McDonalds, know you’re in a former Woolies!
