Your Woermann – making your life easier since 1894
The history of Woermann Brock began several generations ago, in the year 1894.
During this time in Namibian history, there was a great need for general goods and equipment to be imported from Europe and thus, the first ship by the name of “the Woermann-Linie” sailed into the harbor town known as Walvis Bay.
Upon arrival, the Damara & Namaqua Handels-Gesellschaft M.B.H. was formed as a joint venture between the C. Woermann Trading Company and South-West Africa Company Ltd.
In 1909, the company went through some restructuring and officially took on the name: Woermann Brock & Co.
Through many years of ups and downs, trading adversities, two World Wars, severe financial strain, and a devastating fire in 2004, Woermann Brock has remained standing.
Fast forward almost 130 years and find that we still aim to provide you with affordable and easily accessible supermarkets. We are currently located in 4 different towns, aimed at bringing supermarkets closer to home.
This is your supermarket and we are here for you!
