Woolworths a diminishing brand in Ballito

Well, “blow me down with a feather” if this is not the sight that greeted me at Woolworth’s at the Lifestyle Centre today, a store I have not visited in over a year. I always thought the branch at the Ballito Bay Mall was an extremely bad advertisement for this group. But there is hardly stock of anything to speak of in this store.

How on earth does a “once” proud organization like Woolworth’s have their name associated with branches like these?
