Woolworth’s was started in upstate New York by F.W. Woolworth, and it was originally a five-and-dime retail store franchise. After more than 115 years in business, that company closed its five-and-dime market in 1997 to ultimately become Footlocker Inc. in 2001. Because of the familiarity and popularity of the name, modern companies adopted the name for their franchises in the United Kingdom, Germany and Australia, where Woolworths stores were also established under the original F.W. Woolworth & Co. expansion.
