Known to generations of South Africans as ‘Woolies’, Woolworths is the only retailer of its kind in the country, offering fashion, food, beauty and homeware under its own brand name, as well as some carefully selected, well-known brands including Country Road and Trenery. Woolworths also offers a range of financial services in partnership with Absa Bank.
Since our founding in 1931, Woolworths has earned its unique position in the South African landscape by remaining true to its core values of quality, integrity, style, innovation and sustainability and to its promise of offering outstanding service and exceptional value. We’re proud to be a household name and to have earned the trust of the millions of customers who rely on us to deliver “the difference” every day.

We’re passionate about making a difference in our communities, our country and the world we live in, and are deeply committed to the principles of responsible citizenship and to making a real contribution to environmental and economic sustainability through our own operations, and through partnerships with our suppliers, our customers, and our communities.
