BWS began operations in June 2001 as a local neighborhood bottleshop. BWS is a brand of the Woolworths Liquor Group which also includes Dan Murphy’s, Cellarmasters and Pinnacle Liquor. The Freestanding Liquor Division of Woolworths is distinguished from Woolworths Liquor and Safeway Liquor stores (Victoria), in that it stands alone from Supermarkets. The first BWS was opened in Cabramatta, New South Wales, the site of a Woolworths owned Mac’s Liquor Store.
