Good communication and reliable. Have ordered a few things from these guys over the last year or so. They recently did a swap of a product with no hassle and have answered my many questions without issue.

I drove from Tauranga to Rotarua for my soap supplies and was not disappointed! They have literally everything you need to get started and to keep going, and if there’s anything you need that they don’t stock they’re able to get it in within days. A man served me and helped me out around store and was absolutely lovely, friendly and 100% helpful. I will 10/10 recommend and be back there.


Always maxing out my afterpay at this place hahaha, its convenient coz there's so much things you just wana stockup on
