Wow I thought the Woolworths fire was earlier than 81. Anyone remember when the garage behind my house in Toynbee Road Wimbledon caught fire? We all had to be evacuated because the of the danger of the petrol tanks exploding . [Link]

There was a warehouse fire along between South Wimbledon and Colliers Wood, maybe around 1970 (?) - anyone remember that? I went with friends (aged about 11-12) to look inside because there were comic books/magazines there, we scooped up loads (god knows why, they stank of smoke and some were charred) and there was absolutely nothing to stop people getting on site 🤷🏻‍♂️

Funnily enough I was watching cricket from Australia and one of the advert boards was for Woolworths so it must still exist there

The fireman who died, Tony Marshall, was one of our crowd who used to drink at the Beverley as teenagers. Couple of weeks later Tony’s mate, another fireman from the same crowd, Barry Trussell, died from injuries sustained in a separate incident. Tragic.

I remember the Woolies in Wimbledon burning down in around 1981 I think. First memories of going there as a two year-old and screaming the place down because my mum wouldn't accede to my request for some sweets. Wasn't the worst store in the High Street but lost it's way very quickly and became a bit of an anachronism with the advent of Our Price and the supermarkets branching into non-food offers.

Remember getting my school shirts, jumpers and shorts from there when I went to Bishop Gilpin, Ladybird was their clothing brand IIRC.

Hash they could be great if they had someone on the pitch to help lead them when things are not going to plan. Someone like a Robbo or Bulman type would help. I'm not convinced by Daws and I wonder if he is part of the problem. Did wonders at Scunny so much so that their chairman said he made a mistake giving him the manager's job.

Morning all. Raynes Parker - was there ever a Tesco in Morden? As for Woolies, I stopped going there when the supermarkets expanded their ranges, and did it cheaper, but went in that store a couple of weeks before it shut and it was over-priced tat.

Went into one of the last Woolworth stores in the United States in 1989, and that was equally shite.
Oh, and Tomato (from last night) - I had completely forgotten about the coach leaving the hotel without me!

On that "Return of the Dons" thing - I've listened to Andy Brassell's contributions to TalkSport many times and never realised he was a Womble!

Walked into Woolworths in Morden the very day it closed down, just to see what was going on... think it must have been Christmas Eve. The shelves were mostly clear. There was one book left, which I bought - the Viz annual for that year 'The last turkey in the shop'. Then went to Tescos Morden and actually did buy the last turkey in the shop. What are the chances of that?
