H Williams was a supermarket chain in the Republic of Ireland. H Williams collapsed in 1987, following a price war that led to the 1987 amendment to the Groceries Order in an effort to protect the market from further concentration.[1]

The former H Williams supermarkets were sold to other supermarket chains. H Williams' head office was situated in Dundrum, Dublin, also the site of Pye electric goods at one time, now close to the present town centre.[clarification needed] There was also a store located there and said Rolls-Royce's, much more iconic then than now could be observed frequently.[clarification needed] Other stores included ones located in Rathmines, Terenure and Tallaght (now a Lidl).
