Quite neat how business/service used to be... I'm not sure if its still the same but in the early 80's i went into E Hayes in invercargill with a shopping list as far fetched as you could imagine, and part way through it we got to the 35 thou annealed copper sheet to which the shopkeeper frowned and said follow me and below ground level was an aladdins cave of hardware and amongst it was every different thickness of annealed copper you could ever need.

Many many moons ago used to be a hardware store on Broadway New Market that had ladders on rails to reach the stock if it wasn’t so long ago and my memory corroded by the passage of time I would tell you the name.

As a young chippie used to shop here for hardware and supplies.



I remember the Broadway shop well - it was more or less opposite Teed St near the Remuera Rd intersection, likewise cannot remember its name

There was also a good timber supplier by the Orakei Railway station
