Woolworth was one of the largest retailers of their time and today are completely gone, in the U.S. anyway. This video profiles their rise and fall, while trying to provide reasons for all of it.

*Note: The scope of this video is limited to their presence in the U.S. They were also big in the U.K. but that's a story for a different day.

Do you know what happened to Grant's department stores? Big chain when I was growing up. And I can't find what happened to it or to Howard Johnson's. Thanks

My father referred to Woolworth formally as "F W Woolworth" and less formally as "the five and ten".
As a boy, I wore Kinney's shoes.
When my mother went shopping on Saturdays, or when I was on summer vacation or having a day off from school, she made me tag along. One of the stores she went to during the 1950s and 60s was the local Woolworth. It had a soda fountain, sold some stationery, maye had a stand of paperback books, but most of all, it sold fabric and notions. My mother went there to buy replacement buttons and zippers. Fabrics and notions sold, because some women still made their own curtains, bedspreads and clothes. My mother owned a simple Singer sewing machine. Woolworth stores began closing in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s, because women sewed less and less. This was also an era of determined mall construction. I cannot recall ever seeing a Woolworth in a mall.
The next recession will kill K-Mart and Sears Roebuck. JCPenneys will be the last store standing, but it too will close one day.

I worked at the Woolworth's in the Concord Mall in Wilmington, DE and I'm amazed it lasted as long as it did. There was no security system in place whatsoever, and I think their overall store shrinkage was like 4000 times the average of other stores. To "solve" that problem they hired a couple lazy security guards to walk around the store every hour or so and put up fake cameras (they were literally useless pieces of plastic) in all 4 corners of the store. They constantly had us rearranging the store so it was impossible to find anything. That being said I loved that job and would do it again part time in a heart beat.

I remember Woolworths. Woolworths back when I was a kid was like what Maxway is today. When I think of Woolworths I do not think of Walmart or Kmart. I think of Roses. But maybe when they were around when I was a kid it was on the decline.

I have been to both stores and I loved them. My sister bought her first video game set up at woolco.

I worked in Woolworths Australia for 8 years. Too much Management Politics drowned this company.

Beanie Babies are easily one of the biggest fads of all time. But what looks like a fun little toy, may not be as harmless as it seems. This video talks about the rise of the fad, the man behind it, and how it may have taken a turn for the worse.
