Cool find from my parent's basement.  Authentic Woolcrest color markers purchased at Woolco most likely before the chain closed in Canada back in 1994.  They still work!

I had a very early memory about going to a department store with my mom in downtown Gloversville glad i found this thread I was trying to figure out where it was for the longest time...

Here are some pics from the local paper in return looks like my new town Schenectady had quite a history of retail

Downtown Schenectady housed quite a few department stores in its day including
Sears
Barney's
Lerner Shops
Two Guys
WoolWorth

There was even a furniture store that experimented with becoming a Department store..

Great ad! Look at all the oil leaks on that parking lot-would expect no less with all those British cars.

Woolworth is still alive in Mexico:

(I'm thinking the same thing will happen, when Kmart closes all their U.S., Guam and Puerto Rico stores. The Australian and New Zealand Kmart stores will still operate.)

You really did not see Woolworth or Woolco too much around Pittsburgh back in the day.
G.C. Murphy Co. pretty much had the local market locked-up on "5 and 10's".

Last one I recall being in was in Columbus, Ohio in the early 90's.
