Ronald Moser was the final manager of the Butler Woolworth's store. He ran the variety store that sat at Cunningham and Main streets in the commercial hub of the downtown.

Ronald Moser has especially fond memories of the downtown Butler Woolworth's store.

That's because Moser of Butler was the last manager of the Butler Woolworth's that sat at the corner of Cunningham and Main streets, the hub of a vibrant downtown retail area.

Woolworth's was famous for its lunch counter, candy sales and a longtime talking parrot named Charlie.

Moser, 89, was the Woolworth manager for 22 years and retired in 1992, after presiding over the venerable variety store's going-out-of-business sale.

This is an excerpt from a story that appears in Tuesday's Butler Eagle.
