HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Huskisson 1961

Pedersen's Friendly Service Store


Pederson's Store C. 1952 - 1970
Pederson's store formerly Auld's and others, was one of the longest-lived mixed businesses in Huskisson. It sold everything from milkshakes to fishing tackle, including veggies and cups of tea, and got very busy in holiday time. But things were a bit more laid back in those times.

"Regular campers would come every year, young blokes in their 20's.  If we were really busy they would jump the counter and serve themselves,  then help us serve the other customers.  We'd often get knocked up at three in the morning to dish up fisherman's breakfast.
