Woolworths!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pick N Mix is my strongest memory of shopping in Woolies though rather than Who stuff. I remember when they closed down.
I don't have a signature. Sad reacts only.

I was lucky with Toys R Us. My nearest at home was spoiling, they never stocked any Doctor Who collector series stuff. But I moved to Southampton for uni just before the series started. I was going nearly every day to check for new stuff some weeks (little fun fact: they never put the 8th Doctor on shelves, they had him in stocks for a couple weeks and kept him just for click and collect). I remember finding the 13 Doctors set, but it was still in the shopping box so I had to come back the next morning.

By the end of it, they were knocking Missy figures out for £4.96!!
Also ended up getting about 20 3.75 Cybermen for £2 each. Had a shopping spree on Lego when they were about to close, was a bit sad though

I wonder if the two are related?
