Big W release spring homewares collection amid rumours of store closures
Despite reports of mass store closures, Big W has released an all-new homewares collection. Here's your first look at Big W's 2019 spring homewares collection inspired by the country florals and bright colours.
Despite reports that a number of Big W stores could close by 2022, the discount department store continues to soldier on, releasing a new spring homewares collection inspired by country florals and pops of colour. With prices starting at just $5, the Big W's 'Spring Valley' collection features spring-appropriate floral prints, lively colours and tactile textiles. Interior stylist and blogger Gina Curiano, of Style Curator says the range will make it easy for people to give their home a seasonal update without breaking the bank. "Simply swapping and adding a few key pieces will brighten any room for spring at a fraction of the cost of designer brands," she says. Which Big W stores will close? In July, the Woolworths Group (of which Big W is a subsidiary) confirmed the first Big W store closures would take place in Chullora, Auburn and Fairfield in January 2020. David Walker, Managing Director of Big W, said the decision had not been made lightly. "We regret the impact the closures will have on affected team members," he said, adding, "Over the next six months, we will support our team and explore redeployment opportunities with team members who choose to continue their career at Big W."
