Why did Woolworths fail ?

Woolworths failed for a number of reasons these included the ecconomic downturn of 2008. Failure of management could have been a factor as the stores struggled with debt and credit accounts with suppliers were closed forcing woolworths to pay in advance for its stock. Woolworths was one of the first high profile retailers to go under. Over 30 000 jobs were lost as Deloittes took the company in to administration.
