In Tasmania, Woolworths traded as Roelf Vos and Purity prior to being rebranded as Woolworths in 2000. In New Zealand, Woolworths trades as Countdown. It also operated supermarket brands Foodtown and Woolworths until November 2011, which were rebranded as Countdown. Food For Less is a discount supermarket chain located in Queensland and New South Wales. Flemings is a group of four supermarkets located in Sydney and the Central Coast.
