Woolworths opened in Bedminster in 1925, with the Arcade Billiard Hall upstairs. I can’t find a photo of the original store. There is just this photo from when the store was closing at the end of 2008. It looks like a 1950s building from the look of the upper floor, and the store would have been larger going across the whole building. Superdrug is next door, so they probably halved in size in the 1980s and gave the other half to Superdrug as they were part of the same Kingfisher group. This is all my guesswork – if anyone can confirm, do let us know in the comments.

Poundland took over the Woolworths unit, and you can still see the Woolworths tiled pillars today.
