Woolies celebrated it's 35th anniversary in October 2011. The company was started from scratch in October 1976 by Ian and Caroline Woolstenholmes from a double garage, with a nominal stock ultra keen prices and lots of enthusiasm !
After the first 18 months trading, Woolies rented space from Mike Pilbeam (Hill Climb championship car designers and manufacturers) in one of the old BRM workshops in Bourne, Lincs. The Company then purchased its present site in 1979, moved into purpose-built premises in 1980 and extended the building backwards and sideways towards the end of 1984.
Duncan joined Woolies in April 1990 and Louise joined in June 1998. Duncan and Louise are now Directors in the Company with Ian and Caroline having a less 'hands-on' role.
