Apartments to Replace Rock Hill Woolworth Site


It has been more than 20 years since the last cash register sale at the F. W. Woolworth store on Main Street in Rock Hill.

Now, the Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation – owners of the building – the city, Nova Capital and the Tuttle Company are poised to announce a giant cha-ching – a $4.8 million deal to tear down the former five-and-dime store and replace it with a multi-story apartment development.

You’ve read this story before. From the day the iconic merchant closed, there have been front-page stories in The Herald about someone doing something at Woolworth, and the result would be one giant step toward a vibrant downtown Rock Hill.

Some wanted to bring restaurants to the space. Others wanted to turn it into a museum. Others envisioned a courtyard of shops and eateries. In all cases, the result was more people, which would spur even more redevelopment downtown.
