Living Archive collects, preserves and shares the history and heritage of Milton Keynes. Conceived as an antidote to the assertion that ‘new towns have no history’, and nurtured by the belief that ‘everybody has a story to tell’, it has recorded, archived and celebrated the unique history of residents’ lives and sense of place.
Yesterday on Facebook, Living Archive shared a photo of a very familiar and popular store from shopping in CMK.
The photo shows Woolworth in the 1980's.
What is your favourite memory of the store? The Pick 'n' Mix is one of ours!
in 2008, Woolworth’s closed their doors for good.
Did you know that In 1979, The Guinness Book of World Records confirmed that Woolworths was the largest department store chain the world!?
Well there you go, a look back to a store like no other.
Thankyou to the Living Archive for your hard work as always, we love looking back.
