Friday, November 26th, 2010 - Wooldridges
After more than eight months of operating from a warehouse following Perth’s devastating hail storm, Wooldridges will celebrate the official reopening of its Osborne Park store on Tuesday, 30 November 2010.

Minister for Education, Dr Elizabeth Constable will officially reopen the store.

The store was severely damaged by the hail storm in March and was forced to relocate.

During this time, it used what was a major setback to its advantage and reassessed its business model, reinvigorating themselves after 40 years of specialising in school and teacher resources and ‘back to school’ products.

General Manager Daniel Rohr said Wooldridges has expanded its offering and would now operate as a one-stop shop for all your child’s educational needs. Educational toys and aids that assist with the learning and development of a child are available at each of our 10 stores throughout WA and will complement our traditional product offering of stationery, text and school resources.

“After working with teachers and parents for 40 years we realised there was a demand for educational toys and aids across all age groups,” Mr Rohr said.

“We are well known among Western Australian families as the place to go for school supplies, but we will now be known for all our educational offerings for babies through to university students.

“We’re very excited about the reopening of our Osborne Park store and considerable time and effort has gone into improving our offering across all our stores.

“Wooldridges prides itself on being at the forefront of new products and developments in the educational sector.”

The more diverse product range now available includes the following categories:
• Early learning
• Junior builder
• Imaginative play and products
• Art and craft
• Building blocks
• Holiday fun
• Emotional IQ
• Discovery and science

2010 marks the 40th year of Wooldridges’ unparalleled service to the Australian educational community.

Over the last 40 years Wooldridges has grown from a small family-owned business operating in Western Australia, to a large, Australia-wide company reaching schools and communities across the country and keeping the same familial culture that makes Wooldridges Australia’s leading educational supplier.

Reaching out to schools, teachers, parents and the community at large, Wooldridges is able to bring educational resources to all ages and stages of learning and sectors of the community.
