Encouraged by their American parent company, the British offices of F.W. Woolworth and Co. began opening stores in the Empire and Commonwealth from the mid C20th, starting with Jamaica in 1954. These stores were governed from Britain until 1982, when the company was broken up and sold on. Many of the stores became independent operations after this time, and some are still open today.
