Congratulations Fitzpatrick’s Home Timber & Hardware for being awarded this May’s VUETRADE Platinum Distributor Store of the Month!

Fitzpatrick’s, a family owned store since 1923, provides tradies with ‘friendly old-fashioned service’, along with hands-on experience with their products. Another advantage of using Fitzpatrick’s is their extensive range of products, including VUETRADE’s entire range of Timber Connectors. Only 10 minutes from the centre of Bendigo, Fitzpatrick’s is the go-to trade store in California Gully, Victoria!

This is what Shane Fitzpatrick, one of the store owners, has to say:

What is it about your Store that makes it a place that Tradies love to buy from? Our team are exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and willing help with our customers’ needs.

Do you believe it’s all about location when it comes to business, or is it unique products & customer service? We have kept up with new product releases and regularly advise our retail and trade customers of these. Well known local staff are important, Bernie Crameri from Eaglehawk has been supplying excellent customer service now for over 50 years in our store.

What areas do you mainly supply to? Fitzpatrick’s great service has been supplying to the Eaglehawk, Bendigo and surrounds since 1923, relocating from Eaglehawk in 2010 to California Gully, 2km closer to Bendigo. Now in our 96th year, our customers are mostly local, however we are referred to by trades and other suppliers which now has expanded our service to St Arnaud, Woodend , Heathcote and north to Kerang.
