Woolworths opens its doors for Xmas virtual tour and it’s seriously nostalgic

Join the Secret Elves to discover the best shopping deals and things to do this Christmas

For many, beloved store Woolworths was a staple of any shopping trip to the high street over Christmas.

With it’s iconic pick ’n’ mix, aisles full of CDs and tapes, the best toys around and plenty more – there was always something on offer that could be snapped up for a late festive present.

Sadly, Woolworths disappeared from our high street after it fell into administration in December 2008.

But people have now been given the chance to wander the famous aisles one more time over Christmas thanks to a nostalgic virtual tour, as reported by Manchester Evening News.

Online Slots launched the video to “bring back some fond memories” and spread festive cheer after the absolute catastrophe that has been 2020.

The clip, taken at the peak of the stores’ power in the 1990s, begins with a sight of the all-important Quality Street tubs at a extremely cheap price of 2 for £4.99.

The toys aisle is filled with 90s favorites including Tamagotchi, Mr Stretch and spud guns.

At the back of the store sits a Nintendo 64 games console ready for anyone to try their hand at Mario Kart.

Moving through the shop, guests can browse the Woolies VHS catalogue plus thousands of CDs.

And any trip to Woolworths would not be complete with a walk down the pick ’n’ mix stand, packed with a huge array of classic sweets.

It comes after millions of Twitter users were fooled into thinking Woolworths was set for a return after a fake account started posting about it.

A spokesperson for The Very Group told Daily Star Online: "We own the Woolworths trademark in the UK. The Twitter account UKWoolworths is not connected to The Very Group."
