One of the oldest and established clothing and homewares retailers in Australia and New Zealand, EziBuy, has been snapped up by Woolworths.
EziBuy has been around since 1978 and was founded by two brothers, Gerard and Peter Gillespie, who had a store in New Zealand. Since then, the company has gone through a number of re-incarnations and has worked its way through the changes in consumer behaviour and technology to be where it is today. The company now achieves it’s sales through all mediums including including catalogues, where it started, as well as via the internet and call centres. For a Ezibuy discount code see here.
The company achieves most of it’s sales through Australia however does still achieve about 30% off it’s sales in New Zealand. EziBuy has a number of it’s own in house brands but is also a distributor for other brands.
The deal with Woolworths is seen as a big coo for Woolworths who are looking for growth in other areas as growth in grocery is slowing.
