Finding a Woolworths ghost sign.
We were surprised to see a Woolworths ghost sign while walking through Nuneaton town centre!
The sign was above the store's former entrance on Queens Road.

The shop was most recently a Poundland and before then had been a 99p Stores and a TJ Hughes.
|You can see some of Poundland's 'Sorry We Have Closed' messaging on the shopfront. Interestingly one of our local Poundland shops in Stockport has recently closed and where the signage has been removed you can see a British Home Stores ghost sign|
The last Woolworths shop in the UK closed in January 2009 so it's always nice when remnants of the brand become visible again.
We visited the Woolworths in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent last September. That store still has the signage in place and we'd originally spotted it while driving through the town the previous November.
We took a look at an old Woolworths store in Brunstane, Edinburgh in August 2011. That was a Big W Woolworths store at The Jewel retail park. It's long gone now.
You can however still see an old mosaic tile logo at the former Woolworths on Stamford Street Central in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester.
