Interesting about Woolworths......
Woolworth was an early pioneer of the five-and-dime store, and one of the largest retail chains in the world through most of the 20th century.
The first Woolworth store was opened by Frank Winfield Woolworth on February 22, 1879, as Woolworth's Great Five Cent Store" in Utica, New York. Though it initially appeared to be successful, the store soon failed. When Woolworth searched for a new location, a friend suggested Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Using the sign from the Utica store, Woolworth opened his first successful "Woolworth's Great Five Cent Store" on July 18, 1879, in Lancaster. He brought his brother, Charles Sumner Woolworth, into the business.
There was a Woolworths on Hollywood Boulevard a couple blocks from my Grandmother/Aunt's house. We went there often. This is what it looks like now.....
In 1963, Woolworth expanded into the shoe business with the purchase of Kinney Shoe Corporation, which created the store that Woolworth would eventually become — Foot Locker. Despite Woolworth's success, increased competition led to its decline in the 1980s, while its subsidiary Foot Locker gradually became more popular and more successful. In 1997, the last Woolworth store was closed and in 2001, the company changed its name to Foot Locker.
