WOOLWORTHS in Honiton is restocking its shelves with new bargains.

Bosses at the troubled chain say they are replenishing stores with items from distribution centres all week.

The retailer is up for sale with debts of £385million and workers are only being told the store is open until 'after Christmas'.
