    Spot on with the location of the Music & Video outlet. It was originally a Harris Carpets store and after its time as Woolworths Music & Video became an Internacionale outlet before being carved up.

    The final Woolworths was only a part of the Fine Fare store (or later Gateway and finally Food Giant with Mad Harrys discount store). The Discount UK, Superdrug and Primark stores together make up what used to be Fine Fare.
