Woolworths is owned by its parent company Woolworths Group, and Australia’s biggest chain of supermarkets and grocery stores that was founded in 1924.
History of Woolworths
Woolworths (or colloquially called ‘Woolies’) was founded by five Australian entrepreneurs (Percy Christmas, Stanley Chatterton, Cecil Scott Waine, George Creed, and Ernest Williams) in September 1924.
The first store opened in December of the same year in Pitt Street of Sydney’s Imperial Arcade. It is originally called ‘Woolworths Stupendous Bargain Basement.’
Woolworths made history by being the world’s first variety store to install cash register machines that can print receipts in 1926. The company grew further by opening more branches in Australia and even in New Zealand.
