Staff and guests of F. W. Woolworth in Glenrothes gather for a group photograph while getting into the festive spirit at their annual Christmas dance held at the Wayfarers Inn, Markinch in December 1975.

The popular store finally closed its doors for the final time on January 6, 2009 after the 75-year-old company fell into administration with £385m of debt.

The store (now Home Bargains), was opened in 1976 as part of the second phase of expansion of the Kingdom Shopping Centre.
