The first F.W. Woolworth Store in Seattle opened in 1907. This second, larger store opened in 1935. It was one of the few buildings built downtown, other than governmental projects, during the Depression. Five-and-dime stores continued to prosper during this era. The store had a stock design, with a corner tower and a lunch counter inside. Woolworth closed this location in 1994; shortly thereafter it became a successful location for the deep discounter, Ross.
