Foot Locker is a very popular sportswear and footwear retailer. The headquarters of Foot Locker is located at Midtown Manhattan, New York City and it operates in around 28 countries. The first Foot Locker was opened at Puente Hills Mall in City of Industry, California and it is open even today. F.W. Woolworth Company, who purchased Kinney Shoe Corporation, diversified the portfolio of specialty stores in 1980s which included Afterthoughts, Northern Reflections, Ex Place and Champs Sports. In 1989, the company was following a strategy of multiple specialty store formats aimed at enclosed shopping malls.
The concept was that if some kind of idea failed at a mall, the company can easily replace it with a different concept. The company targeted for 10 stores in every major shopping mall of the country but it was not so much successful because Woolworth never developed that much successful specialty store formats. In 1988, F.W. Woolworth Company incorporated a separate company known as Woolworth Corporation in New York. Foot Locker became the Woolworth Company’s top performing line on 2nd November 2001 and Venator changed its name to Foot Locker.
Foot Locker announced a quarterly profit increase of 19% helped by stronger sales in 19th November 2004. The company also acquired the Footaction USA brand and around 350 stores for $350 million from Footstar.
