Default Woolworth's

When my mom and I would go shopping we would always go to Woolworth's and it was such a wonderful store and I would buy some awesome stuff there and Woolworth's even had a diner full of great food as well. It's a shame that today you can never find another wonderful store like Woolworth's again and there should be stores like Woolworth's that were fun to look in for awesome bargains
Do you remember Woolworth's?

When my mom always had errands to run I would always look forward to a trip to Woolworth's because she would always buy me a Barbie doll or a toy as a reward for good behavior and the toy section had some great new toys I would see there before they were found anywhere else. Another thing my Mom and I do at Woolworth's was try on perfume and stuff and it was such a fun time and Woolworth's also had a good section of Christmas stuff and that's where my mom bought our very first Christmas tree and our tree topper as well

I would get paper dolls or a little story book (that was a big deal in the early 60's) if I was good! And I remember they used to sell little pets. birds, turtles , fish!! And I really liked when we would have lunch there at the counter!!

I loved Woolworth's and Newberry's ( I think that is how it was spelled )! Me and mom would go there and pick up something then go to the diner and have a sundae. I miss those stores.

They were fun!! I remember Newberry's too, but not till I moved out here to California! Than I took my boys there! Back east as a little girl along with Woolworth,we also went to a similar store Grants and also Kresge's ! I think ,not 100 percent sure though but Kresge's might have later went on to be K Mart?

I loved Woolworths! We had one in our mall(1970's). I was so disappointed when it closed!

Yes! As a teenager in the 70's besides the Woolworth I went to as a little girl , I went to one that was in a mall! I remember that one having a snack bar, as apposed to a diner /lunch counter, it was in the front of the store ! I remember they sold delicious pizza by the slice!

Lloyd Center in Portland, OR had a Woolworth's until the early 2000's.

I used to live within walking distance of a Woolworth's (not fascinating info, but hey, it fits the topic )

There used to be one downtown in the 60's & 70's but it went out of business. Ours had a basement and that's where all the toys were. I loved that store when I was a kid. They had a lunch counter on the main floor in the back and my mom would get me & my brother a sundae or a milkshake which we had to split between us. My little sister hardly ever went, she'd get left with my grandmother. I guess taking 3 kids shopping was too much for my mom.

The Woolworth that we used to go to when I was little was within walking distance. The one in the mall you had to take a bus or drive!

Kresge's indeed went on to become Kmart and that's what the K in Kmart stands for. We used to have three Woolworth's stores one near me and one in town and there was even a Woolworth's in my mall too but when the Woolworth my mom and I would go to shop a lot in closed it is now a Ace Hardware store. I sure wish variety stores like Woolworth would make a huge comeback today because there's something wonderful in those types of stores that will make you explore for hours searching for great bargains
