THE new Norco Rural Gloucester store will open to the public on October 14.
After purchasing the former Webb Bros rural supplies store, owners Mark and Jenny Coombes have partnered with Norco to open the company’s 27th rural supplies store.
The opening of Norco Rural Gloucester represents a strategic expansion of the Norco Cooperative merchandising business on the Mid North Coast.
Norco currently operates rural stores at Kempsey, Dungog, Macksville and Taree.
“This is a logical expansion of Norco’s footprint in Gloucester and fills a geographic gap that existed in the southern region of Norco’s territory,” Mr Coombes said.
Mark said the new store would endeavour to provide the same level of service and supply to clients as Webb Bros had.
“We want to grow the business through providing field advisory services and significantly increasing the product range to reflect Norco Rural’s broad offering. We’ll also endeavour to provide the Gloucester community with exceptional customer service,” Mr Coombes said.
