This is a great tribute to Woolworth's stores and history. Many great artifacts and also a running cafe in the building with good food options. Worth a visit.

It's not your normal diner or restaurant but a nice fun place to get a sandwhich and soda. The decore is a mixture of funky, old and new mixed together. But hey your in an historical building of the old Woolsworth, when things moved at a slower pace.

The outside is okay. It looks similar to the original building. The restaurant inside has nothing to do with Woolworth, plus I will not eat there again. Any hamburger place would have better service and food. Not much to see. In ten minutes you will be done.

This old Woolworth building has a charming restaurant called Fresh and Fabulous which is delicious! Also the building has kept some of the original items from that era and has a tiny museum.

I liked how the exterior of the store was preserved. Too much of history is removed, destroyed, and lost forever. The small museum display behind the restaurant had photos and descriptions of the Woolworth store and brand, and photos of the Woolworth founders.

This is the real deal, an old Woolworths building in downtown Oxnard. There is a small museum, a continuation school, and a great eatery all located in this building. Old Oxnard is filled with homes and buildings with such character, its a great place to walk around. During December there is several "Santa Claus Lanes" with wonderful lights and decorations,...

So as we got lost and ended up in this cool little downtown area, we realized we were in Oxnard... not Oxnard by the onion fields, but Oxnard closer to the beach. As we walked to a little store, we were awe struck by what we saw, the beautiful Woolworth building across the street! My jaw dropped as it took... More

the Woolworth Museum 401 S A Street. The lunch counter is still going strong in this historical 2 story building. We did not eat here, but did spend 30 minutes in the lobby checking out the history of Woolworth and viewing some of the “artifacts” left behind. There is a photo booth, stamp vending machine, a ballpoint pen vending machine,... More
