The week between Christmas and New Year’s is often the busiest time of year for shopping centres…

From last minute food shops on Christmas Eve, to Boxing Day sales and New Year’s party shopping, it’s safe to say a visit to the shop during this period must be planned.

Many stores remain open for majority of this time period, despite the public holidays.

Stores like Best&Less are here to help with a last-minute outfit or Christmas gift.

To help you prepare for the busy shopping season, we have taken a look back at Woolworths’ holiday trading hours for 2022.

We anticipate the hours to be very similar this year.
