Gowing Bros History

Gowings was founded by John Ellis Gowing in 1868 originally as a retailing business, with its first store opened at 318 George St Sydney. The Company soon entered into property investments operations across Sydney's CBD. During 1920s GOW completed the purchase of a range of property investments and started an investment portfolio in 1953. It made its debut on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1962 and it is one of the oldest family retailing businesses in Sydney. The Company’s investment and retailing operations were separated in 2001. Gowings is one of the founding investors in Woolworths and it generates wealth for its shareholders primarily through listed equities.
