Merricks General Wine Store

Back in the days before impersonal supermarkets and oversized shopping centres, the humble general store was a community hub, a place that served an important social, as well as supply, service.

Country life in Merricks

In 1924, Merricks General Wine Store (MGWS) opened, to serve a variety of needs to the local community. To this day, the well-preserved building offers a glimpse into the past as a typical example of the rural general stores that were once a central hub of community life.
