    About Woolworths Group Ltd

    Woolworths Group Ltd (ASX: WOW) is an Australian retail group operating primarily in the supermarket sector in Australia and New Zealand, with other operations in discount department stores. 

    One of Australia’s most recognisable brands, Woolworths Group owns Big W in Australia and several supermarket chains in New Zealand. In June 2021, the group divested its retail drinks and hospitality brands -- including BWS, Dan Murphy’s, and Cellarmasters -- to create Endeavour Group Ltd (ASX: EDV).

    Woolworths was founded in 1924. After listing in 1993, the group has gone on to become one of the largest listed companies on the ASX. It currently has more than 1400 stores across Australia and New Zealand and employs more than 190,000 people.

    Woolworths shares are often referred to as defensive shares, as the Woolworths share price can act as a potential buffer against economic downturn given the nature of its primary business activities. Even in an economic downturn, there is still demand for food, toiletries, and other essentials.
