Footlocker was founded in the year 1974. The company has been active for almost 44 years now. The founders of the company were Santiago Lopez and F W Woolworth. The company had branched off the Kinney Shoe Corporation. The first store of the company was opened in Puente Hills Mall, California, USA. By the year 1989, the company had adopted a strategy to open ten speciality stores at each major mall of the country - an idea that never came into fruition.
Around the 1980s and the 1990s, the company’s sales declined and thereby closed all stores in the USA, which were operating under the Woolworth’s name. Woolworth Corporation still remained the parent company of Footlocker but changed the name from Woolworth to Venator Group. The company had shut down all its other stores, as Footlocker was the only sub-company that was successful. In the year 2004, it was reported that the sales of Footlocker rose by almost 19 per cent. As of the year 2014, the company is currently ranked at number 400 in the Fortune 500 companies list.
The headquarters of the company is based in 330 West 34th Street. The name of the place is New York, while the name of the state is New York, USA. The pin code of the area is 10001.
