SWINDON, ENGLAND - DECEMBER 22:  Shoppers enter a branch of Woolworths that is closing down on December 22, 2008 in Swindon, England. Swindon has historically had a reputation as something of a boom town, not least for being the chosen location for the Honda and Mini car plants, however as the effects of the global recession and job losses begin to be felt many people in the town face a gloomy Christmas and New Year.
