former Woolworth
Chicago, IL
This Woolworth now houses a Walgreens and condos. I believe this building was constructed in 1930. Woolworth left the building around 1998. For more, see this website. [map]

This first Woolworth shown above was built in 1938 and is now occupied by a Footlocker shoe store. [map]

The second Woolworth shown above seems to have the original striped awnings. The building was vacant as of 2006. By 2012, the building was still vacant. The red signs and awnings were gone. [map]

By the 1920s, there were over 60 Woolworth stores in Chicago. There are probably more buildings left than the three shown here.
