19 March 1913 the journey began when Bill Goodwin & Herbert Storr Opened the first Iron Mongering business in the small town of Laidley Queensland.
From humble beginnings, the business developed due to demand and town growth, thus becoming a hardware store in the early 1920’s.
During the 1950’s Bill Goodwin sought retirement and this became an opportunity for brothers Arthur and Allan Storr to take over and create a true family business.
Staying true to the ‘Family business’ tradition, in 1992 the Goodwin & Storr hardware store (keeping Goodwin in the name out of respect and historical nostalgia) is now owned by John Storr (current Manager) and his siblings.
