A link with the past closes its doors

Saturday 27 of February marks an end of an era for Kiama with the closing of the Simmons family’s hardware store in Terralong Street. The Kiama Supply Co (aka Mitre 10) was founded in 1899, with Ross joining the business in 1975 and brother David in 1980.

The brothers sold the extensive property to Kiama Council last year, and have leased it back since then.

Council is investigating a number of proposals it has received for future use of the site, including at least one offer to buy it from them. The site is considered pivotal to future planning options.
