The closure of Woolworths’ last British stores in 2009, a century after the first opened in Liverpool, sparked a wave of nostalgia. This absorbing history charts the American chain’s conquest of the British high street with its cornucopia of sweets and toys for children, cosmetics for young women, and household goods for families. Historic photographs of its distinctive Art Deco shopfronts will strike a chord of recognition, while the retail giant’s inexorable decline will provoke reflection on changing consumer habits.
