In January 1887, the Weekly News reports “a large new store has been erected on the southern side of the railway line”. Charles Freeman wrote about a store at Halverson’s big house (known as Ericksons) behind the railway station. A former occupier of the house in the 1970s recalls being told by a visitor that there was a shop operating there in earlier times.
The large house was demolished in 2017 to make space for the Penihana housing project.
