    That second one was our local Woolies. Our kids insisted we boycott Iceland because they’d taken it over. Even though it wasn’t Iceland’s fault that their beloved Woolies failed.

    Martin,
    Yea, it was partly Woolies own fault – they’d sold off many of their shops and were renting them back at igh rates – but they were also owed money by companies who weren’t paying up.
    My eldest son had a part-time job at our local Woolies when he was a student so we were aware of the ins and outs.
