The three-story F.W. Woolworth department store was hailed as a modern marvel when it opened at 428 Minnesota Street in 1955.
Shoppers enjoyed state-of-the-art amenities like air conditioning and escalators, and merchandise that included professional attire at everyday prices. For thirty-seven years, Woolworth’s was a fixture on the corner of Minnesota Street and 7th Place East. Times changed and Woolworth’s mid-century modern building eventually closed its doors in 1993.
For the past 25 years the building sat mostly vacant and deteriorating. In 2015 the long-term land lease expired giving the building owner the opportunity to forge a new direction. Fast forward to 2018, our base building, The 428 has reused the original building’s beams to anchor a future-forward approach to the modern work space including Wellworth’s coworking environment.
