A number of posts mention Woolworths here in Australia.

 

There is no link to F.W.Woolworth and Co in the UK. It started off here as Wallworths Bazaar Ltd, a rather obvious play on the UK and US company name.

Having found that the Woolworths name was not registered in Australia they adopted the name Woolworths Limited in 1924.

As many have said, they along with Coles have the lions share of the fresh food and dry goods market. 

Aldi have aggressively entered the Australian market, LIDL/Kaufland are also planning to increase their presence in the Australian Market.

 

The shopping streets of many towns and cities have been decimated by the closure of Woolworths and many other of the other chain stores such as BHS and M&S, as shopping habits change.

Here it's not closures that are killing the High St it's the opening of big stores out of town.

We owned a mobile phone store in our small town for a few years.  The big stores were selling them as a sidline cheaper than we could buy them from the cell company.  Folks would come in, play with our stuff then go home and buy online.  We sold out while there was still a market.  We'd had enough.

The closing of the stores in the town centres has left the centre of many towns empty hulks. Yes, it is happening here too particularly in the CBD as parking charges increase and the council reduces spaces and time available for free parking. Joe public has voted with their feet and gone to the out of town shopping centres where parking is free.

High Road, Beeston. On the left in the middle distance, Woolworths, and closer to the camera a Farrands.
