The Old Woolworths store on Bridge Street opened its doors on Friday for the first time in years.

But unfortunately for fans of the chain, it is not re-opening as work being carried out was on sewage pipes and not renovation work.

An engineer on site carrying out maintenance told the Times that a number of passers-by had made comments about the store re-opening.

There will be no renaissance for the once thriving shop that closed years ago, moving to the Tower Centre before the demise of the chain back in 2009.
