History

John and Denise, locally born and raised South Islanders arrived in Alexandra to take ownership of the store in July 1999.

With John's experience in the appliance industry, the store quickly changed and developed. Extending the Tarbert Street store, growing product ranges and developing to fit the growing needs of the community. 

In 2008 we moved premises to our current site, across from the bridge, Alexandra. This move gave us the opportunity to provide a better service level to our Central Otago customers. This included off-street parking, larger product ranges and substantially better store layout. 

2015 saw the removal of the yellow colour from the building and introduced the clean refreshing white. The move to Appliance Plus has given us the opportunity to provide you with a wider brand range and gives us the power and confidence to competitively compete in the aggressive appliance industry at both retail and commercial levels. You can be confident that we will offer the same great service, advice, experience and competitive pricing.

We're proud to be local, and thank all our customers for their ongoing support of our store throughout our 18 years. We look forward to seeing you soon.
