Back From The Dead

It would seem that the much lamented corpse of Woolworths may be about to rise from the grave, albeit in a reduced form.

Shop Direct has bought the name, and intends to relaunch it online this summer.

Needless to say, as Shop Direct already owns other brands (eg Littlewoods and Kays) and that Woolies will only be an online presence there will be little opportunity for many of the old staff to be rehired.

Indeed, Shop Direct announced jobs cuts last week.
