Reviewed 17 April 2014

this is a great place for guys. lots of old vehicles and burt munro memorabelia here. and the ladies can sit on the couch and watch a movie and drink coffee or hot chocolate after wandering thru the manificient gift ware available for buying. Allow a good hour, then it all depends on how interested you are. this is a free activity.

“Best hardware store in NZ”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Whatever you want you can get, and only the number you want, eg 1 bolt, 1 screw, in imperial or metric. Tools for all. It takes around 2 hours to look at it all, a great store
