Woolies replacement not what people want
AFTER reading your article (Gazette, July 3) about Woolworths in Chapel Market, closing down. I have to say I am disgusted by their decision. Why is it that the working class have to suffer the consequences of who says what stays and goes?
AFTER reading your article (Gazette, July 3) about Woolworths in Chapel Market, closing down. I have to say I am disgusted by their decision.
Why is it that the working class have to suffer the consequences of who says what stays and goes? Surely it should have been a community matter?
Now I've got to travel further to get to the shops I want to go in - i.e. Kentish Town for Woolworths.
I've found myself on many occasions in Woolworths and like the young mother in the article, have gone into the store to get all sorts of different things for my home and for my child - and at Christmas the store at Chapel Market is very handy.

For a start we have Sainsbury's. I never asked for them to be there. I would love an Asda, plus I have never asked for a Marks & Spencer's there. How about an Ikea home store?
Now they want to put a Waitrose in place of Woolworths. That would be a total shame. I can hardly afford Sainsbury's prices, let alone Waitrose.

The traders up Chapel Market are forever complaining that they don't get any trade. The reason is due to their stock - the stalls themselves have gone down market.
I mean you have to move with the times. We don't all fit into size 10-12 any more. You can get better value for money and quality i.e. clothes and toys, looking elsewhere.
If the stallholders took a good look at the type of stock they sell, then maybe we could all go back to the hustle and bustle of Chapel Market and the so-called good old days.
