Main Street Historic Walk – Site 46

This was vacant land until Sunny West Stores in 1953 combined with site no 45 built their new store. In 1985 both lots were purchased by Sunny West's parent company Wesfarmers and in 1985 it was known as Farmers Hardware. In 1990 Archie Martins operated here for some time until 2003 when Coles purchased the whole area and built their supermarket plus present small shops in front like Bob's Shoe Shop, Brumby's Bakery and Glitterati jeweler shop.
