Quotes

...The brand admitted they were pleased with the Aus$2.45 billion result for the year to June 30, but that "there is still work to do, particularly in general merchandise and home improvement"
"For us July and August haven't varied that much, any sort of customer confidence [measure] you look at they are not at the most confident at the moment and I think it's important to call that out and, from our perspective, that's why we view customers will remain cautious which means we need to work harder to earn their custom."
"It is and has been for a very very long time the engine room of the Woolworths group and that remains the case" chief executive Grant O'Brien said
Woolworths said while it was well-positioned for growth, it expected trading conditions to remain challenging in the 2015 financial year, "with consumers managing cost of living pressures in a time of economic uncertainty"
