F.W. Woolworth Co. price sticker

This 78rpm record was interesting enough but on closer inspection I found the price sticker to be the most fascinating part of the vintage item:
I remember buying K-Tel albums at my local Woolworth's but the days when Woolworth stocked 78's? That was well before my time. I find it really interesting tho to run across these little snippets of evidence of times gone by. When I was growing up there was a Woolworth in almost every shopping center, it was unimaginable that they would someday be completely gone. I wonder if 50-60 some odd years from now someone will be looking at a Wal Mart sticker on a vintage item and asking, "Remember when those used to be everywhere?"
