F.W. Woolworth is spinning in his grave,
WOOLWORTHS has cancelled Christmas in one of its German stores after claiming its only remaining customers are Muslim.

The former high street favourite went bust seven years ago in the UK but still operates 300 stores across Germany.
And a row has broken out after staff at a branch in Dortmund decided not to bother with Christmas decorations, gifts or music this year because it is now essentially a Muslim store.
Shocked locals found out after the Christmas section, which featured decorations, gifts and and festive treats such as chocolate Father Christmases, was removed after just a few days on display.
