The Woolworths Museum

1932 Full-page Advertisement

This page features a copy of one of a series of full-page advertisements placed by F.W. Woolworth & Co. Ltd. of Great Britain and Ireland in 1931-2.

Although ostensibly promoting the new, second superstore in London's famous Oxford Street, the goal was to attract investors who had yet to discover the wonders of Woolworth's, boosting the share price.


From the Daily Mail in 1931, a full page advertisement ostensibly promoting a new store in London's Oxford Street, which also served to boost the shares of the newly-listed Woolworth business in the British Isles
