Woolworths Holdings Limited is one of South Africa’s biggest chain of retail stores that has first welcomed their first customers in public in the city of Cape Town. Dating back as far as to the year 1931, Woolworths was built on the dreams and aspirations of its founder, Max Sonnenberg. In addition to selling clothing and accessory pieces, which ranges from different brands such as Trenery, Country Road, Mimco, Witchery, Woolworths also branched out to other business such as food stores (Cafe W).
What made Woolworths so intriguing and survived through decades is the fact that the company is always in line with the upcoming trends that constantly pop up throughout the years. As a result, the company is forced to come up with dynamic policies in order to keep up with the surging demands of the public. As a result, Woolworths has opened several other stores all over South Africa, in locations such as Durban, Port Elizabeths, and Johannesburg. All this is made possible with the hard work and superior quality, exciting innovation and excellent value. Because of this, Woolworths manages to stand out within a sea of competitors in the retail industry.
