The people have spoken! The nation’s favourite shop is still the nation’s favourite even after being closed for over a decade according to a new survey by YouGov.
Otherwise known as Woolies, the shop was unsurpassed on the high street for years (for us it’s the pick ‘n’ mix) so much so that it still sits in our minds to this day.
The YouGov survey quizzing Brits on which shops they’d most like to see on the high street once more found out that some of the biggest high street named such as Debenhams, BHS, Topshop & Blockbuster to name a few.
Half of Brits wished they could bring back Woolworths YouGov revealed with fifty and sixty-four the most likely to want to see it back at 60%.
The retailer, lovingly nicknamed Woolies, championed the high street for decades before its demise in 2009 – so it is unsurprisingly one of the most missed out of all the lost shops from the noughties.
And a recent YouGov survey quizzing Brits on which shops they’d most like to see back on the high street found that, out of all the lost high street icons, Woolies is the most requested.
The shop made an impact across all generations, too, with those aged between fifty and sixty-four the most likely to want to see it back, at 60%.
It seems that the younger generations must be feeling nostalgic for the toy aisle as a third of eighteen to twenty-four-years-old want to see the doors open once more.
