  • familiar name in the UK for Woolworth's stores, which, as of dec 08, look like they will be no more. Apparently Ludwig Wittgenstein enjoyed shopping at Woolie's, although i can't remember now where i read this fascinating piece of information.

    and i have just confirmed via the wikipedia that there is a connection between Woolie's and the Woolworth building in NYC (i thought there had to be).

  • We also have Woolworths in Australia. Same moniker in use.
