SIR, - While the closure of Woolworths in St Albans is still fresh in the mind, I remember the store as a child when nothing cost more than sixpence and you could get quite a lot for that - a halfpenny worth of sweets, for instance, and chocolate whorls for twopence each.

K. REED,

Henry Street, Tring.
