Whereas the standard Woolworth was a "variety store" or 5 & 10, which offered a selective product line within the confines of a 20,000 to 40,000 square foot store, a Woolco was much more. A Woolco store would encompass from 80,000 to 130,000 square feet. A list of its departments might read as follows;

Red Coach Grill Restaurant; automotive service center; men's, women's & children's apparel; men's, women's & children's shoes; hardware; housewares; small home appliances; major home appliances; draperies; floor coverings; bedding; jewelry; luggage; cameras; phonographs & records; sewing machines & accessories; books; stationery; toys; sporting goods; pets & pet supplies; smoking accessories; candy; drugs; health & beauty aids; garden center.
