Southern Lagniappe: Dinner at an Old Country Store

Late last Thursday afternoon, my husband and I traveled to the tiny town of Learned, Mississippi, which is about 30 miles southeast of Vicks.

The first Woolworth store was opened on July 18, 1879, by Frank Winfield Woolworth in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as "Woolworth's Great Five Cent Store". Despite growing to be one of the largest retail chains in the world through most of the 20th century, increased competition led to its decline beginning in the 1980s. The chain went out of business in July 1997.

Woolworth opens "The Great Five Cent Store" in Utica, NY. It failed in six months, but the second store he opened in June of the same year seemed to catch on. We spent hours in the Woolworth's store where I grew up in Seattle.
