The old Okere Falls Store was resurrected and reinvented in 2004 using the same building that stood on the edge of SH33 with a petrol station, selling hot pies, lollies, bread and milk for many years. Sarah Uhl, together with friends and family, renovated the original shop, carefully crafting a nostalgic country store feel with hints of the 1950s, a time when Okere Falls enjoyed a boom in batches and holiday makers.
Sarah and her friends are serious about good, healthy food. A real driving force behind the concept of the Okere Falls Store has been a need to provide interesting and unique food. Fresh, local produce, organics and condiments sit side by side with Italian, German and Spanish gourmet treats. An ever-evolving array of divine New Zealand Artisan Foods are filling every available bit of space in the Store. Perusing the shelves is itself a very enjoyable experience!
