SIR, - I must be one of thousands of people who are sorry to see the end of Woolworths stores. My mother worked at the St Albans branch of Woolworths in the 1920s and 1930s. I also worked there from 1948 to 1952. The store manager at that time was a Mr Sellick, a very caring man with regards to all the staff and especially to me; also the floorwalkers, now called supervisors, who were always there to help the counter staff.

We had counters that we worked behind and had to serve the customers personally in those days.

There must be many readers who have tales to tell and memories to look back on.

MRS ELBOURN,

Carnegie Road, St Albans.
