Woolworth's Time Line

Woolworths Stupendous Bargain Basement

In 1924 a group of Australian merchants opened a discount store. As a dare, they named it Woolworths Stupendous Bargain Basement despite the fact that they had no relation with FK Woolworths. The company grew into one of the largest merchants in Australia. Woolworths Australia is one of Australia's largest supermarket chains.
