Tony Ioppolo, the guy I know as a client of our delicatessen business in Kalamunda, used to be an electrician/electrical contractor. He’s the third owner of the original family business of Walker’s Hardware which from 1979 came under the franchise name of Mitre 10.
He left his electrical profession behind and chose a new career path when in 1989 with his wife Joanne became the new owners of Mitre 10 in Kalamunda. They continued on and extended the true professional & personalised service with none to compare.
“If you like our service, tell others If not, please tell us” . . . so by word of mouth, his business expanded. For both his customers & clients, *there’s the convenience of online shopping:
*home delivery to your doorstep (within a radius of 25 Km)
*qualitative & quantitative services in respect of your needs
*a good range of quality products at very competitive prices
*in addition, free membership to Mighty Rewards Club is available . . . ensuring a bonus return of up 5% of your purchases.
Both Tony & Joanne, the owners, are locally born. They are both in the local community helping charitable organisations helping to raise funds.
They have 12 employees (full-time & part-time) including Shane who has been with Walker’s for over 28 years and Roland who himself used to own his own hardware business in Kalamunda . I find them all very helpful & most of them have been in employment for many years.
Between the Mitre 10 and True Value brands, they have 36 independent stores in WA, and this particular store situated at 5 Stirk Street, Kalamunda stands out supreme having won WA’s State Small Format Store of the Year for the last four consecutive years. The original store used to be situated at the top of Haynes Street, presently occupied by Thai On The Hill Restaurant. There original owner of Walker’s Hardware was called Jim Walker who passed on only a couple of years ago.
Remember, qualitative & quantitative services are your benefits . . . something really missing these days in the giant corporate stores or warehouses.
Come one, come all
