The Franklins group was broken up and parcels of stores sold off to various bidders – including Woolworths and Coles. 86 stores across New South Wales were sold to South African retailer Pick ‘n Pay, which also bought the Franklins name. New stores were subsequently opened, both as owned stores and franchises. In 2010, all stores were sold to Metcash for A$215 million, to become part of the IGA chain.
