Sams warehouse logo

Sam’s warehouse was an Australian operation of “The warehouse group limited”, founded by Stephen Tindal in 1982, the largest discount store retailer (similar to Walmart in the United States) operating in New Zealand. In the year 2000, The Warehouse extended its business chain into the Australian market.  But in 2005 the warehouse group sold its Australian operations to Catalyst Investment Managers and its parent PPM capital Limited, together known as The Catalyst and Castle Harlan Australian Mezzanine Partners owing to its under- performance. The new unit was named The Australian discount retail.

Due to the some changes in ownership, the Australian discount retail needed to re-brand all Australian warehouse stores to avoid any brand confusions. By the end of 2008 all the Australian stores were completely re-branded as the “Sam’s Warehouse”. By the beginning of 2009 the Australian discount retail went in to heavy debt of over $ 90 million. Because of this debt The Sam’s warehouse was sold to “Retail Adventures pty. Ltd” owned by Australian multimillionaire Jan Cameron (the former owner of Kathmandu) for an undisclosed sum on 23 March 2009. Presently there are 81 Sam’s warehouse stores all over Australia.
