Supermarket giant Woolworths has been quietly bringing some extra Christmas cheer to its stores in the 24 days leading up to Christmas.
Team members in stores across the country have been finding different ways of making Christmas shopping trips a little less stressful, with reports of staff gifting shoppers with everything from candy canes, to Christmas meat and a trolley full of toys, according to Yahoo 7 news.
“Our purpose is to bring a little good to everyone everyday, and our store teams have been surprising our customers and the local community at Christmas with random acts of kindness for a number of years,” Woolworths general manager of store support, Rob Moffat said.
The activities are decided by staff at each store. Teams across the country have been supporting local charities with hampers, visiting local community groups and fundraising for hunger relief partner OzHarvest.
“During this busy time of year, Woolworths team members always look to make a small difference to those shopping with us and we just just love seeing the smiles and joy that it brings to our customers and the communities we operate in,” Moffat added.
Last month the supermarket giant kicked off its Christmas efforts with the launch of its own Christmas collectables to rival Coles Little Shop promotion.
