QUICK! WE NEED TO SAVE WOOLIES!

Oh dear. Poor Woolworths continues to go through the Mill, as today their shares were suspended, whilst they try to make their way through rescue talks.

Am I the only one who thinks this is very very very sad? Woolies is part of our heritage (Ok, so it came from America, but that fact that we've all forgotten that says a lot). They are an integral part of the British high street, and the only place you can buy a Buzz Lightyear costume, a toaster, some Pix'n'Mix and a lawnmower all in the same place. WE CANNOT LET THEM FALL! WE MUST SAVE THEM.

I suggest we start a campaign to save Woolies. Everyone should commit to go into Woolies this weekend and buy one thing - whatever it is (and as we all know, it could be any number of things!). Pass this on to everyone you know, get it onto every blog and LET'S SAVE WOOLIES!

It would make an interesting case study if we could get woolies saved through the web. Like Wispa. Sort of.

yes it would. And an added bonus would be that we had actually SAVED WOOLIES. Come on people, get it out there!

There's still time people - everyone go out and buy something at Woolies. And pass this on. If sales are good, then the interested parties might get more interested!
