Woolworths Fashion Catalogue 2017

Woolworths or Woolies as it is commonly called is a well-known departmental store with several stores in South Africa and Australia. Woolworths stores and factory shops are where you can find fashion items like clothing, footwear, lingerie, bags, belts, jewellery, purses, sunglasses, watches, umbrellas, scarves and wraps. The South African retail store was founded in 1931 and it is headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa. They say everybody is influenced by somebody or something which they draw their inspiration from. In the case of Woolworths, the founders were inspired by a UK retail store, Mark and Spencer (M&S). They adopted the M&S concept for their first stores in South Africa and created ties with the UK company, which resulted in Woolworths selling its remaining shares to M&S. Later on, M&S decided to sell the shares but cooperation between the two companies remained intact. Truworths was the next company to merge with Woolworths but the romance was dissolved in 2001, leaving Woolworths with complete ownership of its firm. At this point, the company was performing well financially, thanks to its prior relationship with Truworths. Thirteen years later, the company made a $2.15 billion acquisition by buying David Stones, an Aussie store.
