Yeah Woolworths owns it. Infact many stores and brands in NZ are owned by by the Ozzies. Take a look here at just one company that owns quite a few https://www.pep.com.au/pages/content.asp?pid=3

I am sure Dick got a good price!

I think it is interesting how Australian owned stores, often names themselves after the original owner of the business. It isn't done so much in NZ, maybe that is a cultural thing. Imagine if the Warehouse was called Stephen Tindall (sir)

In Australia the uncomfortable duopoly of Coles and Woolworths account for over 70% of retail spending.
Coles markets Shell petrol, owns K Mart, Target, Liquorland etc etc.
Woolworths, markets Caltex, owns Big W, DSE, Tandy, Dan Murphy, owns a String of pubs, Gaming machines etc etc

They have just removed the name Woolwworths from NZ supermarkets.
