Check out the list below for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Over half the people surveyed wanted to see Woolworths back on the high street. Woolies, as it was affectionately known. Was famous for its pick ‘n’ mix sweet section, and in the 1980s boasted the biggest selling pop music section in the UK. The store went into administration in 2008, shutting its doors for the final time in 2009.
2. Toys R Us
This kids toy superstore, that was once a haven for children everywhere, was second on the list with 18 per cent of people keen to see it return. The final Toys R Us stores were closed down in April 2018 after 34 years on the high street, but shoppers can still buy toys via the brand’s website.
A high street staple for 88 years before it plunged into administration in 2016, British Home Stores was third on the list. The department store sold everything from clothing to household items. The store is now online only specialising in homeware and lighting.
The bookstore chain Borders Books was fourth on the list with five per cent of voters wanting it back on the high street. The American owned bookshop chain was a rival to Waterstones before it went into administration in 2009. At its peak, there were 41 shops around the UK.
