Poundland (in the former Woolworths store), 37 High Street
This was one of a number of the former Woolworths stores taken over by Poundland. It ceased to be a Woolworths in January 2009. It is rather ironic that Woolworth started off its first UK store, in 1909, with everything priced at six pence (in pre-decimal currency). Today the former Woolworths stores bought by Poundland, including this one in Bromsgrove, sell everything at just 1, and they have made a success of it. If Woolworths had been more focussed and responsive, they would probably still be here today.
