WHSmith Brands & Partners

Australia

In 2010, we opened our first Australian store in Melbourne Airport. Since then, we’ve expanded rapidly, opening stores in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and across other parts of Queensland and New South Wales. As well as WHSmith branded stores based in Australian airports, stations and universities, we also operate under other brands – Zoodle (for the younger traveller) and Gadget Shop (electronic accessories, technology and gifts). Then there’s Fresh+, our hospital food outlets. Acquisitions make up another exciting part of our Australian business. Since 2010, we’ve bought the following brands which operate as franchises – Supanews, Wild Card & Gift and Kenny’s Cardiology.

Europe

Europe is a continent that comprises the westernmost part of Eurasia. Europe is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. To the east and southeast, Europe is generally considered as separated from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways of the Turkish Straits.[4] Yet the non-oceanic borders of Europe—a concept dating back to classical antiquity—are arbitrary; the primarily physiographic term “continent” as applied to Europe also incorporates cultural and political elements whose discontinuities are not always reflected by the continent’s current boundaries.
