Woolies Window

Here in Barrow we had an old saying, usually said by folks who earnestly believed that they were in the right. The saying went "if that's true I'll show my arse in Woolworths window" or "if I don't keep my promise I'll show my bum in Woolworths window."
Well I guess that now that Our 99 year old Woolworth store on the Main Shopping street is finally closing it's doors (and windows) for good, folks are having to rush in there to fulfill their promise. Look closely at the photo of the storefront!

Cute photo!

I was sad to see the last of the Woolworth stores go. They closed in the US a while ago. I couldn't bring my self to go in and pick over the bones of the dying company. It felt like grave robbing.

p.s. I'm glad you've posted!

You should have kept your promise. I thought your arse was bigger.

Woolworth is now re-opened as a pound shop. Everything in it for £1.00p Now thats an advert I like to see, "Everything for £1". It doesnt say £1 each so does that mean I can fill my basket and hand over just £1.

Another thought here.. If Marks and Spencer bought out Poundstretcher then would they call it Stretch Marks.
