Our Story

 

We are local.

100% owned and operated we're a homegrown kiwi business, born and bred right here in New Zealand. Every single one of our owners; Henry, Daniel, James and Richard V, Anton, Simone, and Richard S is hands-on, working right in the heart of Van Dyks.

 

We've got more than 100 awesome staff who are experts in their field and who are committed to understanding exactly what you need and making sure you are well taken care of. Our Google reviews are testament to this, because at the end of the day, it's all about people doing business with people, not faceless companies.

 

We are a great place to shop.

We know that home is where the heart is, which is why we stock quality products from well-known brands. We're your go-to spot for dining, living, kitchen and bedroom furniture, flooring and appliances.
