When it comes to supermarkets then I think we have all options covered. First there is Aldi which is located very close to the CBD at 97 church Street, then there is Coles supermarket located in the very heart of the town in Mortimer Street and last of all we have Woolworths which is located at 88 Mortimer Street. All are within easy access of the general business area and have ample parking. Big W and Target are our larger department style stores and both of these are also located with ample  parking close to the business hub.


As you come into town from main entrance from Sydney, you will pass Harvey Norman on your right on the very edge of town and Sleep City on your left.

They offer both visitors and locals a great opportunity to meet and taste some of the great products on offer as well as a chance to listen to some music and browse through a great variety of stalls.
