St Lukes: A New Look

27th August 2015

So here we are, after 22 years we have had a make over. Calm, or something like it, has descended on Kings Plant Barn St Lukes now that all the building work has finished.

Building a better store in St Lukes

Building a better store in St Lukes

6th May 2015

Thanks to everyone that came in last week for their patience during the loud beeping, banging, and thudding of construction workers last week.

Takapuna's New Look

Takapuna's New Look

6th May 2015

Peace and quiet, or something like it, has once again descended on our Takapuna store now that the builders have finished. We’d like to thank everyone that has come in for their patience. But even if the din of building was hard to endure, we are fairly hopeful that the new indoor layout will make it better for staff and customers alike.
