Wiki

Franklin Winfield Woolworth (April 13 1852 – April 8 1919) was the founder of F.W. Woolworth Company (now Foot Locker), an operator of discount stores that priced merchandise at five and ten cents. He pioneered the now-common practices of buying merchandise direct from manufacturers and fixing prices on items, rather than haggling.

Frank Winfield Woolworth was born in 1852 on the family's meager potato farm in Rodman, New York, about eleven miles from Watertown, the son of John Hubbell Woolworth and Fanny McBrier. He got his first job as a stock boy in a general store. On June 11, 1876 he married Jennie Creighton (1853 – 1924), with whom he would have three daughters: Helena Maud Woolworth McCann, Edna A. Woolworth Hutton, and Jessie May Woolworth Donahue, who were raised to enjoy all that the nickels and dimes could buy.

He died in 1919 at Winfield Hall, his mansion in Glen Cove.
