At its peak there were 819 Woolworths around the UK and Ireland.
In November 2008 Woolworths went into administration and by January 2009 all the shops had closed and 27,000 staff laid off.

A Grade 1 listed building (Historic England List Entry Number: 1205810 LinkExternal link ), Blackpool Tower is almost 520 feet (158m) in height. It was first opened to the public on 14 May 1894.
