The Coop expected to have a faithful clientele which would stay with the stores and Bocking says although there were customers who stayed with the Coop a there Are some that Arentt so he says the Coop has changed some ways it did business in the last year but these Are not necessarily a direct result of the mall. One example of a change he says is the Coop is using More flyers to advertise the various outlets. The downtown Woolworth store has had some cutback in business says manager Richard Brink but is he says the downtown store has about 99 percent of the same kind of merchandise that it carried before but has gone out of Large items such As furniture. This makes the smaller store a a variety store he says. The two Woolworth stores in town Are operated separately running their own specials and ordering their own merchandise. Manager of the mall store Nick Dirienzo says at the first part of the year the two stores worked More closely together and it is Nice to have somebody who is running a store for the same company in the same Community.
