About the StoreArthurs Emporium has been a family business based in Whangarei for the last 30 years. From a small market stall at the local flea market the business has grown to a large store and several warehouses, importing a vast range of goods from a variety of overseas markets. It was started by Arthur and Jen Brasting and has now expanded to a staff of fifteen full-time employees working to bring bargains to the people of Whangarei and the rest of the far north.
However, with the introduction of new technology, and after a few years of dabbling in the trade-me market we plan to make our bargains avaliable to the rest of the country. Feel free to browse, and we hope to have the pleasure of doing business with you.
