It’s nice to look back at good old Woolies. When that company came to an end, many high streets in towns around Britain lost their iconic meeting places. I’d say we’ve been luckier than most in Abergele. The Diskos shop that takes the place of Woolworth isn’t all that different from Woolworth. OK, so you can’t buy Ladybird children’s clothes, there’s no record department, there are no stick-on shoe soles and metal sole ‘inserts’, but I think Diskos is a bit of a gem. The staff are friendly and I see people chatting together just as they used to in the old Woolies. The high street shops are vital to the heart of our towns and I think Abergele’s lucky in that respect.
