Wendy Brownrigg and David Neal of Bairnsdale Camping and Outdoors have just celebrated 24 years since opening the doors in 1996.
Despite significant competition from chain stores and online retailers, Bairnsdale Camping and Outdoors continues to be one of the region’s favourite independent and locally owned stops.
With a wealth of local knowledge and extensive experience in outdoor camping and travel, it is easy to see why the business is still going strong. Part of the reason for David and Wendy’s longevity is their integrity. They offer advice and recommendation to customers to ensure they are getting the best thing for them and aren’t afraid to admit when they don’t have the answer. “We only sell good quality products, so if neither David nor I, wouldn’t use it, we won’t stock it. We always talk to customers and try to obtain as much information to ensure they are getting the best thing for them.”
