Central Stores was established by William Donald (Bill) Smith on Miller Street in Gilgandra, New South Wales in 1951 and operated until 1969 when Bill retired.

A classic country store you could buy anything at Central Stores - including the kitchen sink!

In January 2013 Bill’s granddaughter Elizabeth McAllister (Smith) re-established Central Stores on Miller Street... just a few shops down from the original Central Stores.

Central Stores is now a country emporium featuring primarily Australian lifestyle fashion, accessories, homewares, art and books.
