Advertisement for the first Woolco store in Columbus, Ohio

 

This advertisement for Woolco in Columbus Ohio, published in October 1962, shows remarkable insight into the campaign of resistance which has followed big corporations' schemes to open giant category-killer stores ever since. It emphasises that Woolco will be a good neighbor (neighbour) and is strongly committed to Columbus.
