Ray Hindy opened the store in 1958 that mainly carried dry goods and groceries. In the mid 1960’s the Department of Highways needed about half the land the store was built on to construct a new road in the town. Ray and his wife Monica sold the land, tore down the original store and built a new one just meters away.
The construction of the new spacious store provided the opportunity for the Hindy’s to expand our business ideas and stock to include building supplies, plumbing, along with dry goods and groceries.
Over the next 30 years Hindy’s continued to flourish under Ray and Monica’s entrepreneurial leadership. The couple along with their staff, built a reputation for reliability and outstanding customer service.
In 1991 Ray and Monica handed the keys of the operation over to sons Paul, Lloyd and Charlie who were more than up for the challenge. Charlie has since moved to St Johns and away from the family business. With business growing, the brothers felt it was time to expand their vision as well as the actual store space. A new spacious store, the current Hindy’s Building Centre was constructed.
