"My first experience of buying records in mid Wales was the local Woolworths (RIP), mainly buying chart fodder (Bros, A-ha, Curiosity Killed The Cat, Kylie, Michael Jackson... ahem), and especially those bargain bin surprise purchases (lots of Shakin' Stevens and Grease soundtracks as I remember)."

Cate le Bon brought her first record New Kids On The Block 'Step by Step' at Carmarthenshire Woolworths.

I found this advert in the 'North Wales Weekly News' dated 18th November 1971: “F. W. WOOLWORTH, COLWYN BAY, invite you to visit their NEW RECORD BAR on the First Fioor - OPENING Thursday, 25th November, 1971 • FULL RANGE OF RECORDS, INCLUDING TOP TWENTY, ALL TOP LP's, AND CUT-PRICE DELETIONS.”
