WOOLIES ON THE WEB FOR CHRISTMAS

News, 01 December 1999

THE FRENZIED RUSH to exploit Christmas online was joined both by high street chain Woolworths and home shopping group Littlewoods. Woolworths site launched on 1 De-cember offers a range of around 350 items including CDs and toys. 'This site is particularly for the Christmas period', said a Woolies spoke, 'but we will be extending it to offer a full range of products for next year.' Along with many other online retailers, Woolworths believes this Christmas will prove a watershed for e-commerce. Littlewoods, which has had an online presence for some time, has revamped its index.com site to celebrate the birth of Christ by offering up to 7,000 product lines.
