If anyone is passing then have a look in Reeves window. He has a couple of 1955 photos of Woolies on display.
I remember Woolies being THE shop to go to, along with Gamleys, when I was a kid. I can also remember when Bills was Victor Value before it became Tesco.

I went past saturday and saw them, excellent shots. I think personally it will be a sad loss when woolies go.

I can just about recall a huge clock on the wall at the back of the store. Must be late 50's, early 60's. Roman numerals I think. Does anyone know when Woolies opened in Lewes? Has it been on its current site in town longer than Hugh Rae's at the top of the town?

I like The Grange Gardens, and the way the teashop has the most odd mixture of china from the charity shops
