The Woolworth Corporation originally began as a general merchandising store. The first store opened in 1879 was known as the “Great 5¢ Store.” The store’s success led Woolworth to open other branches in different locations.
Foot Locker, Inc. also opened additional specialty stores, including Lady Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Footaction and Champs Sports. The company has branched out internationally to Europe, New Zealand and Australia. It is currently headquartered in New York City.Learn more about Corporations
