Spotlight has grown from a single, family-run market stall, to become one of Australasia’s leading retail chains.

Operating in four countries, Spotlight is acknowledged as a market leader in fabrics, craft and homewares. We offer our customers hundreds of brands and thousands of products at the lowest prices. Millions of customers each year shop at Spotlight, both in-store and online, and our VIP loyalty program is one of Australia’s largest.

Spotlight’s founders Ruben Fried and Morry Fraid learned about fabrics by working at their family’s stall at Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Market in the early 1970s. A powerful work ethic and keen business sense led them to open their first Spotlight store in Malvern in 1973. Today, in addition to our extensive store network in Australia, Spotlight owns and operates outlets in New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia, and employs about 6,000 Team Members.
