The Only Place You Can Find A Woolworth's Soda Fountain
The iconic Woolworth’s chain closed its last US store in 1997, but if you visit Asheville, North Carolina, you'll find the last remaining Woolworth's Soda Fountain. The Fountain is located in the renovated building of an old Woolworth’s and is not connected to the store, but instead is a modern take on the chain.
Scott Sirkin bought the place in 2001 and made a lot of repairs, going the extra mile to make the Woolworth Walk as close to the original as possible. The fully functional Old-Fashioned Soda Fountain resembles an original Woolworth's Luncheonette.
In case you don’t enjoy the soda, there are a lot of other options — the food menu is true to the original menu found at Woolworth's Luncheonettes. The menu includes blasts from the past like egg creams, club sandwiches, old-fashioned ice cream sodas, and a special sandwich that has a connection with the original store: the tuna melt.
