What's Wool Worth?

You know the credit crunch has really hit when high street legends go to the wall; sure enough, today the retail arm of Woolworths has buckled and is in danger of going into administration. Having lost its market share to many competitors over the last few years, the strain of an enormous £385m debt has finally proved too much and widespread closures look inevitable, bringing redundancies to cuddly sheep and black-and-white dogs all over the country. This follows the news earlier today that furniture giant MFI has collapsed quicker than one of their wardrobes. Now where am I going to get my pick 'n' mix cupboards? Would you credit it!
