Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A wonderful mix of interesting things on display - I bought soap, fudge and a most beautiful little hand knitted baby vest in pure NZ wool as well as a hand knitted little hat.Also some lovely hand made jewelry on display as well as magnificent hand crafted knives made by the owner's husband. Prices are reasonable. Well worth a visit.

Just as I remember village shops to be. Full of interesting and odd things. After visiting Peter Lorimer's workshop we were able to purchase a beautiful hand made knife form here. Worth a visit.

A few interesting local objects to view. Small so just a five minute stop unless the guy is there doing some craft.

Eclectic mix of gifts and unique Kiwi service. A hidden gem of Central Otago. A template that other Post Offices should follow.

I love this shop. It has everything that makes purchasing a pleasure. Stephanie has quality goods, well priced and things you just don't see elsewhere.

Top of the list for me is the hand made knives made by husband, Peter. I have just taken possession of one and it is not only beautiful to look at, it is an absolute joy to hold and use.

Don't leave the shop without buying some ''Thunderpants." Knickers and Knives under one roof.
Perfect!!!!

So worth a visit...a country general store with glorious range of beautiful stuff! Omakau and Ophir just across the river are great destinations for a day trip or overnight too.
