The blunder of Woolies

My Grandad worked in Woolworths when he came out of the army after the war. He rose through the ranks and managed stores. They were proud places, back in the day. The greatest tragedy is that this wave of nostalgia - signifying some kind of affection for the brand - has not been tapped into by the recent management.

Sad news indeed. Amazing then that although the official website is closed due to "Site maintenance", their recruitment site at http://www.woolworthscareers.co.uk/woolworths/careers.nsf/corporate/home.htm

is still open!!
