Marlow – Store 563

5 Market Street, Marlow, Buckinghamshire SL7 3HH

This Woolworths store opened in part of the Crown Hotel on Market Square, Marlow around 1935. The building was formerly the town hall dating back from 1807. Here is a postcard of the whole building when it was the Crown Hotel in 1913.

I think the store closed in the 1980s when the company closed a lot of stores to cut costs, and since then it has been a Boots store. Here it is today.
