Christmas Lifestyle

Start planning your Christmas grocery shop - Woolworths just announced its Christmas trading hours for 2021

Get in before the rush this year!

The Christmas season is already upon us, and with December 25th just weeks away plenty of Aussies are already planning their festivities.
That means checking off their Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, setting up the tree and so, so, so much more.
With so much going on it can be easy to forget about the all-important Christmas grocery shop until the last minute, leaving you to race around the shops trying to secure prawns and pudding.
That experience is never fun, especially when just about everyone in Australia is doing the exact same thing - or at least it feels that way.
So, to help you plan your Christmas break, Woolworths has released its trading hours for this year's festive period, with all their store closures across every state.
