Big W stores

I had only one “Notions of Australia” previously (see below), not knowing who sold them. One of these has a ‘Big W’ price sticker, so they were yet another Woolworths branding. The Big W branding was “retired” from 1970 until 1976, then resurrected. The logo on the price sticker dates from 1976-1989.

Because this was originally a General Plastics design, it was presumably supplied by Beutron who had by that date taken over General Plastics.
