Woolly’s General Store offers a wide range of whatever you might want or need and a
picked cornucopia of the best of New Zealand.

unique artisan-made gifts, outdoor gear and clothing, practical kitchenware and
hardware, the warm, welcoming staff is ready to help with a friendly smile and
pointers on the best things to see and do while visiting Glenorchy.  

You can feel good about your purchases too: all profits from sales at the General
Store go to benefit the local community trust, to improve the lives and livelihoods
of our neighbours here in this rural town at the head of the lake and the heart of
the mountains.

Mrs Woolly’s General Store is Qualmark certified and has achieved a Gold
