Spotlight is owned and operated within Australia, with retail stores located throughout Australia, New Zealand, and South-East Asia. A family-owned business, Spotlight employs approximately 7,000 staff members, who are highly trained and committed to providing the best customer service and expertise in goods such as crafts, fabrics, and home-ware.
Spotlight's beginnings came from the originators of the company who learned all about fabrics and textiles by running and operating their family stall at Melbourne's notable Queen Victoria Markets during the early 1970s. Their strong work ethic and business judgment inspired the family to open their very first Spotlight store in Malvern, Melbourne, in late 1973 - and ever since, they have grown from business strength to strength.
Spotlight's head office is located in Melbourne, Victoria.
As Spotlight's business presence grew, so did their available range of fabrics and textile products. Nowadays, Spotlight has over 100 retail stores located across Australia, New Zealand, and South East Asia, with literally hundreds of quality and well-known brands, and thousands of household products, for consumers to choose from.
Spotlight expanded their product range to include kitchen and dining items, bedrooms and lounges, laundries, and bathrooms, all available at most Spotlight stores.
Spotlight has considerably expanded their existing product range of crafts, haberdashery items, and their children's birthday party section offers parents with numerous options regarding decorations and costumes for your child's celebration.
In 2014, Spotlight established and launched its online e-commerce presence, providing consumers with an alternative shopping channel to access and purchase all of their products, as well as providing online expert advice.
