Woolworths is an Australian company that was founded in 1924 in Sydney. When we opened our first store, the Founding CEO Percy Christmas stated a key principle for Woolworths: Every man, woman and child needs a handy place where good things are cheap.

This principle is just as important today as it was in 1924 and we work hard to live up to this vision by offering the best possible convenience, value, range and quality to the 28 million customers we serve each week.

Woolworths has more than 3,000 stores across Australia and New Zealand, that span food, liquor, petrol, general merchandise, home improvement and hotels. Woolworths is a proud, home-grown Australian business, employer of more than 198,000 people and committed business partner of many thousand local farmers, producers and manufacturers.
