Poundworld/Discount UK
Poundworld/Discount UK
A rebranding of the former Discount UK, in what was for many years the Orpington Woolworths (see TQ4666 : Woolworths, Orpington High Street). A few days earlier the big banner that had been in place since reopening in 2012 had been removed (compare TQ4666 : Poundworld/Discount UK), revealing the former frontage.
Woolworths Orpington
Originally opened on 6 January 1934, with the present building dating from the 1950s, this was the home of the Orpington branch of Woolworths until the collapse of the chain in 2008, with this shop closing on 27 December in that year. Since then it has gone through a number of changes, which this series of photos attempts to record.
