Reception to celebrate the launch of the Woolworths archive at the University of Reading

10th March 2017.  A reception was held to celebrate that the corporate archive of Woolworths UK has been donated to the University of Reading Archives.  Following preservation work and cataloguing, the collection will be soon accessible to researchers and others with an interest in this much-loved retail institution.  Archivists from the University's Special Collections displayed a selection of archive materials for attendees to examine and explained the extent of restorations that have taken place so far.  The event was attended by Business History academics from a number of national and international institutions, retail archivists and former employees of Woolworths.
