What does the online tour show?

The virtual tour begins with the words, “Let us take you back 30 years to a better time. We’re talking about when the Macarena was a national dance movement, Turkey Twizzlers were a school dinner delicacy, and Saturday nights were reserved for Gladiators and Blind Dates.”

As the video enters the virtual Woolworths store, it explains “one of the best things about the 90s was spending your hard-earned pocket money in Woolworths, you know, everyone’s go-to bargain store that sold everything from homeware to trending toys - even your school uniform!”

The virtual tour then navigates its way around the store, showing how the layout of the shop would have looked and the sort of goods that would have been on offer to customers.

It takes a look at toys popular when the store was still open, including everything from Beanie Babies to Tamigotchis.

The tour also looks at the wide range of CDs that used to be on sale at Woolworths, as well as portable games consoles.
