Gosforth Woolies: before and after
I happened to be in Gosforth yesterday evening (paying a visit to the very good Loch Fyne restaurant), so used my mobile to capture a shot of the recently opened The Co-operative Food – previously mentioned here – which occupies the High Street’s former Woolworths site. If you need a reminder, here’s what it looked like back in September:
It’s certainly good to see the new Co-op store bringing some colour and life to that part of the High Street, though I am still quite surprised at the Co-op opening up in an area that is already served by decent-sized Asda and Sainsbury’s stores. I’d be interested to hear what any of the locals think about the Co-op’s arrival, and whether it really brings anything new or distinctive to Gosforth High Street.
