History of Big W
The original department stores of Big W offer a full line of items when it first opened in 1964 at the Jesmond Shopping Centre in Newcastle. Launching these stores, Woolworths still operated several Woolworths Variety Stores that offer a similar line of products and merchandise.
In the 1970s, the company decided to stop the use of the name ‘Big W.’ It was converted to stores that offer a large range of general merchandise as well as a supermarket food range, which was known as Woolworth Family Centres. These centers were later on converted into supermarkets in the 1980s.
In 1976, the name ‘Big W’ was used again. Now, as a discount department store which has the same store format as of today. The BIG W brand as it was created by Woolworths Limited, offers a wide variety of general merchandise items in a dedicated one-stop shop for Australian shoppers.
