    Does anyone know if the current position with the Woolworths receivership is
    published anywhere online?

    Google, Woolworths receivership uk - gets the first hit with:

    Too bad I used to get Malted milk balls (Maltese (sp) to you) there
    when I was very young.

    Fact is I used to buy my lab equipment there, Potassium Nitrate in the
    from the pharmacy.... these days I'd of been labeled a terrorist.

    Hate to see it go, and hope the above answered your question (if not
    it's a start).

    Yes, I remember when I saw my first saltpeter fire. It had a *very*
    different use than for just gunpowder back then. Only ever knew one person
    who used it for that.

    Maltesers. Yum yum. Is there no equivalent on your side of the pond?
    Can't ever remember seeing a full-blown pharmacy in Woolie's, although
    when I was a kid I bought various chemicals from Boot's the Chemist.
    A hundred years of High Street trading here in the UK gone in almost the
    blink of an eye.

    Wikinsons is very much like Woolworths used to be and always very busy. I
    wouldn't have taken much more than a trip to Wilkinsons to have seen how to
    put it right.

    It seems that Iceland (frozen food stores) might be taking over a fair
    number of their premises.

    The closest US equivalent of Maltesers are called Whoppers,although
    Maltesers are better !!!
