There are still many branches of Woolworths in South Africa and other sub Saharan countries. As far as I am aware there is no connection with F.W.Woolworth although there probably was in the past. Unlike the UK/USA Woolworths they are nothing like that former store. They are very similar in layout, products etc to UK Marks & Spencer. In fact a limited amount of their product range is from M&S.
There was at one time a UK type Woolworths in Harare in Zimbabwe but as I have not visited Harare for many years I don't know if it still exists.
