Rose's General Store and Information is one of those quirky little stores where you never know what you will find. An old fashioned store filled with products from NZ, some from further afield and local information. Rawleigh's independent distributor, stockist of haberdashery, confectionery, local preserves and regional honey and peanut butter, eco friendly items and penny farthing and cycle supplies. Some items will bring back memories from your childhood. Located in the Connell and Clowes building at 5 Tyne Street. Designed by Forrester and Lemon and built as an addition to the Criterion in 1877. I am in the ground floor space that provided the offices for Messrs. Connell & Clowes, commission agents. The building was purchased by the Oamaru Whitestone Civic Trust 1995 and the exterior restored in 2001.
