Sue, it’s 2022, yeah … but for some reason last night on the phone my mom brought up Woolworth’s and a ton of memories swept over me.

Woolworth’s, something I haven’t thought about in years. This store was for us in the 80’s. The smell of the store forever in my senses. I still remember that smell when I walked into this store in our town. Some of the Woolworths I knew had a real restaurant or just a bar with stools. Ours had a counter with stools.

Some of the memories that you have already shared with me at Woolworth, I thought I would share with you …

S&S of Toms River remembers going to Woolworth’s every Saturday afternoon with their grandfather and they loved sitting at the counter.

Tim from Asbury Park loved the train section they had at Woolworth’s. He always bought a car or a train when he went with his father.

Sandra from Pt. Pleasant Beach loved going to Woolworth’s to buy yarn with her mother. (Funny, I remember the big bins of wire sitting at the end of some islands.)

I love these memories, I’m glad I’m not the only one with these great memories. Thank you very much for sharing these beautiful memories.

Patty from Bayville loved Woolworth’s for their chocolate milkshakes. They made particularly good milkshakes with whipped cream and two cherries and our Woolworths put that cherry sauce on top of the whipped cream. I miss Woolworth’s.

Share your memories of Woolworth’s. Bring back the lunch counter.

Sad, Woolworth is no longer here. Here are some other things you might miss from your childhood:

Iconic (and sometimes silly) toys, technologies and electronics have been usurped since their official entry, either through technological advancements or through breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories – and which were there and gone so quickly you missed them completely.
