Please note that there are products in store that may not be available on the website. Please give us a call, come in store or email us if there is a specific product you are looking for, and we can help.
We have more stock instore than online so contact us or visit us if you can't see what you want. However please be aware that Covid19 has had a significant impact on supplies coming in from overseas so availability of stock is unpredictable this Christmas. If you're buying a (surprise) Christmas gift from us then buy early and we can store your purchase until you collect prior to Christmas (we're thinking telescopes in particular).
Unfortunately we are now back at level 2 for at least two more weeks and the Auckland region at Level 3. If you are back to working from home don't forget our online ordering services. See the May 14 and April 28 updates below.
During lockdown we started adding more products to our webstore but it's a big project so a long way to go. If you can't find what you want then give us a call, or call in, to see what we have, or can order, in for you.
Yippee - we're now at Level 1. Well done New Zealand. We're back to normal Mon-Fri hours which are 9-5. Saturday will be 9-midday for winter.
We're closed for the long weekend but from Tuesday will increase our opening hours from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to midday Saturday.
We have registered for the NZ COVID Tracer app so our QR code is at the front door if you prefer this way of recording your visits. Click on image below for download link.
We are going to ease back into our operating hours as we adjust to the Covid19 way of operating safely. Staff will be behind the scenes outside these hours processing online orders but the doors will be open to customers from 10am to 3pm, Monday - Friday from May 14. Please phone for an appointment outside these hours if necessary.
We will be meeting appropriate public health requirements for our workplace, including regularly disinfecting surfaces; washing and drying hands, physical distancing, a limit on the number of people in the store at any one time, to ensure safe shopping for our customers.
We've finally moved to Alert Level 3 and some of our staff will be working behind closed doors between Mon-Fri, 10am to 2pm for phone orders and phone queries as well as processing on-line orders. During these hours phone us to arrange contactless deliveries and collections outside our store. Phone (07) 838 0031
Outside of these hours you can order the following online 24/7:
UPDATE APRIL 10
Since the lock-down we have posted regular tips to Facebook and Instagram encouraging you to sort through your memorabilia.
The lock-down has provided the perfect time for sorting through your photo and video collections so we hope you took up this challenge but if you didn’t it’s never too late to start. Getting slides and tapes digitised can be very rewarding as the devices to view these are now becoming obsolete. Mould is also the enemy of slides and tapes so the sooner you get them converted to digital the better.
Once you’ve had your old photos digitised you can share them by turning them into gifts such as photobooks and photo collages.
In our "downtime" our staff have been sorting through their own photos - pictured is Jill & Graham sorting through some of their own.
Stay safe. Stay sane. Keep smiling - laughter is the best medicine!

We'd love to see you.
