WOOLWORTHS stores will all be closed by January 5 after administrators Deloitte admitted it had "not come close" to finding a buyer.
The high street chain employs 99 staff at its stores in Huntingdon, St Ives and St Neots.
Across Britain Woolworths employs 27,000 staff in 807 stores.
Bargain hunters flocked to stores last week after massive sales saw stock reduced by up to 50 per cent to shift the goods before the imminent closure.
The Huntingdon store was particularly busy on Thursday, December 11, when the sale was announced.
Many shoppers expressed sadness that the high street chain would be closing down after being such an iconic shop in Britain for almost a century.
