We always stop here to check out the local artists, and I always seem to find something that needs to come home with me. Great location and very organized.

For those of us that remember true Woolworths, know that this space still feels like Woolworths: the lunch counter is there and the food is quality, and the sweeping staircase going to the lower level is true. I like the great use of this space: local artists can rent space to display their arts and crafts. I like to shop... More

I visited Woolworths in Ashville because they advertised a real old fashioned ice cream soda at their food counter. The stools and counterbwhere exactly like the Woolworths I grew up with. The arts represented a great variety worthy of your time and money. Enjoy!

Cute old Woolworth building made into an art gallery with lots of art shops. None of the artists are there to talk to you just a display of their stuff and a cashier. Wish it was more personal.

There are some great places to eat in downtown Asheville, but we wanted to try something nostalgic and nostalgic we got!!!! The lunch counter has been beautifully restored and serves great food and delicious milk shakes. I had the fried bologna sandwich and a chocolate shake and it was great. My friends had the egg salad, chicken salad, and club... More

A great old Woolworth store left pretty much the way it was when it closed (other than art and craft has replaced the old merchandise counters). Very inventive art work on two levels AND they kept the lunch counter and soda fountain and it is a wonderful trip back to an earlier time. Great style, great art...what more could you... More

Love all of the different works of art here. Many with very reasonable prices. We walked through most of the River Arts District and I saw many of those artists represented at Woolworth. So if you don't have time to get to the RAD or if, as was our experience, many of the galleries were closed, never fear! Just head... More

As a former NYC resident (now a Floridian) Walking around downtown Asheville while waiting to have a table available at the restaurant it was a heart stopping moment for me when I looked at the Woolworth sign.. My mind was flooded with beautiful memories of a much younger time when shopping there was such a treat. As I approached the... More

It was great how they kept the soda fountain functioning and opened up the space for local artists. It is worth going through.

We enjoyed the art and had a hard time deciding what to buy. The diner was so cute! We ended up buying art and were happy we stopped by the Woolworth Walk
