When I was a little girl, my parents would often take me to the F.W. Woolworth store to shop; especially on a Friday evening or Saturday morning. If we went on a Saturday morning we would begin our shopping day with breakfast at Woolworth. We would sit and chat and enjoy a leisurely breakfast and my parents would talk about what they needed to buy that day. The food was always delicious and fresh, and the price was fantastic! Most of the shopping (with the exception of food) was done at Woolworth...much to my delight!
Woolworth sold just about everything! They had wool, school supplies, sewing needs, pet supplies such as turtle and fish food, bird food...and they even sold budgies, canaries, fish and turtles. They also sold a good selection of toys, games, colouring books and many more items! You could hear the birds chirping in the store when you were at the luncheonette or just browsing the store. It was a great place to shop, I just loved the atmosphere and the selection of goods.
This post will complete my topic of F.W. Woolworth...end of an era. I hope you all enjoyed seeing the photos and hearing my memories of this amazing store!
Here are the final photos. First up is the F.W. Woolworth grate.
