Woolworth's at Fashion Fair

Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

Woolworth's at Fashion Fair

Post by Bonedaddy500 » Mon May 11, 2015 10:19 am

There was a Woolworth's at Fashion Fair mall back in the 70's and 80's. When did it close and where was it located in the mall? Can you tell me what store is there now? And what are your favorite memories of going to Woolworth's at Fashion Fair. I remember buying a fish tank in the pet supplies area, and eating at the lunch counter.

Victoria's Secret is there now. It closed around 1993.

I remember the Woolworth's in Fashion Fair very well. It had a basement level too. The escalator was in the middle of the store and the lower level was the same size as the main level. If I remember right, the bottom level sold electronics, movies(VHS), sporting goods, and other various items. I'm not sure what the location is now. I do remember Fashion Fair used to have a few areas which accessed the lower levels in the mall. Back in the day, there was a large staircase by the main entrance(where Baskin Robbins is) leading down to bathrooms, various office's such as security, executive's, etc. It was a very large staircase taking up a huge part of the floor space with railing surrounding 3/4's of the large rectangular opening, allowing people to look down into the area. Today the area is completely covered over, however I'm sure there's another access point somewhere else in the mall.
