9:06 pm Friday 31 October: General trading since 1937
The Kakahi general store is one of the few such businesses remaining in New Zealand. It’s been owned by the Lala family since 1937. Manu Lala took over in 1956 and has kept up his father’s tradition of selling a vast array of things from foodstuffs, to clothing, nails, fishing tackle and fireworks. The shop is almost a museum piece in itself with photos and samples of old products dating back over 50 years.
Bob Wilson runs the Parkside Limestone Quarry in Weston near Oamaru that’s been in operation since 1906. The quarry produces large quantities of agricultural lime and is the sole New Zealand supplier of Oamaru limestone building material.
