The Woolworths Hoax

Bad journalism was at work yesterday.

A Twitter account, claiming to be behind a Woolworths relaunch, announced that - from 2021 - the once popular chain would return to the British high street.

I read this news on a number of websites. However, it was later revealed that the Twitter account has no links whatsoever to the Woolworths trademark.

What ever happened to those days when reporters got their facts in order before running a story? 

Woolworths went bust in 2008 after collapsing in deep debt. 

I would love to see the shops return because I have fond memories of shopping there. However, it's just not going to happen
