Dinky Di has a product to clean almost everything. This large shop is chock-a-block with a range of hospitality and catering supplies. In this shop hygiene and cleanliness are always on the proprietors' minds, along with quick customer service.
This time of year for those of you with fish tanks in your household, the glass homes of little or big fishes need special attention. Heat and water are the perfect combinations for the dreaded mould. And with new products of Splosh™ now in stock, mould is in hasty retreat. We know how mould affects allergy sufferers. So, we look for natural and environmentally sound products that clean indoors and outdoors.
Dinky Di carries so many products that fit the fill - clean, clean, clean.
ONCE YOU FINISH THE CLEAN, IT'S TIME TO SHOP ( something Maxine would say)

We lack shopping skills so The Home Store at the corner of Fitzgerald and George streets takes the pressure off. Here we find 'everything' - it is the ultimate variety store, an 'Emporium of Riches'! We have wandered for hours in room after room chock-a-block from floor to ceiling with…well, everything!
Think kitchen, think home accessories, furniture and mirrors. A wedding or anniversary coming up? At The Home Store, you'll find invitations, stationery and table decorations. . .
Need sewing items or hardware for a DIY project? Need arts and crafts items to keep kids entertained during school holidays? Or, dress-up costumes for a party. If you can't find an item, call on the staff. They seem to know every nook and cranny and the location of those everyday items.
Proprietor Tass Karozis tells us that many locals still refer to the store by its name from many years ago, The Base. Typical of country towns - the former name and its reputation is fused in local memory.
