Long before the days of Amazon, eBay and online purchases, we used to do our shopping the old fashioned way – popping down town to our favourite stores.
Today we feature a small selection of shops from South Tyneside, including Woolworth’s.
And we start with the once popular store, and a picture taken in Jarrow.
There’s no date on the photo, so if you recognise yourself or anyone in the picture, perhaps you can name the year.
As you know, Woolworth’s used to sell everything imaginable, and used to be so popular. What did you like about shopping there?
Talking of selling everything, take a look at the choice of items available at the two smaller shops shown here.
What can you tell me about these?
