    My Grandfather worked as a security guard at Woolco in Washington back in the day…

    I know that Gateway(now ASDA) opened on the Woolco site on the 13 February 1987, so the closure must have been before that.

    Excellent – thanks Angus! Trust the Echo to be the one that’s wrong :)

    I never saw or heard of Woolco’s up until my mum told me about it. The nearest one to us is across the road from where we live now in Killingworth. Its now Matalan and joined to the Killingworth Centre
