Minimax – Victoria, TasmaniaDavid
In 1967 the original Melbourne homeware store, Minimax, first opened the doors. Ray and Gene Harrrison originally set up a small local hardware store selling such items as hose fittings and light bulbs, the Minimax name was even a play on the brand name of the dominate Hardware chain of the day, of the store being a Mini ‘McEwans’. Over the journey, 2 generations of the Harrison family moved with the times and transformed that little hardware store to the stores we see today. Minimax remains a great family business today with the Blythe family at the helm.
