In the heart of the Kimberley region of Western Australia in a little town called Fitzroy Crossing, is where you will find Kimberley Country Department Store. Surrounded by pastoral leases and steeped in Aboriginal culture and history, Fitzroy Crossing is a unique little one horse town, that seems to have been lost in time, situated on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River.
Kimberley Country was purchased back in 2016 by Chris and Sally Towne. Sal came upon the business for sale in a conversation while sitting on her horse, waiting for a campdraft run at Daly Waters campdraft in early 2015. After working with the Townes on a station on the Barkly tablelands, Bron was ready to move back to the Kimberley for a new challenge, so took on management of the shop, while Chris and Sally continued to manage the station on the Barkly for the first 12 months and Sal travelled back and forward to help Bron out when she could. Everything fell into place and in March 2017 The Towne Family made the big move across to the Kimberley where Chris began managing a station just out of Fitzroy Crossing and Sal started to work with Bron at the shop each day.
In 2018, we became the proud new owners of the KCDS mobile shop, which we travel with throughout the WA and the NT for the campdraft and rodeo runs, stocked up with top quality brands such as Ariat, Cinch, Wrangler, RM Williams, Pure Western, Akubra, and Resistol just to name a few. Move on another 12 months and after recognising a gap in the market we have now opened another store just 1000km down the road in South Hedland, in the magical Pilbara region of WA.
So now moving into our 4th year, Bron has officially come on board as an owner in the business, and together we are very proud to say that KCDS is one of the largest suppliers of Western apparel and workwear in Northern WA, and offer a great delivery service throughout the region. We have spent years living and working in the bush, we have worn the brands and we have a great understanding of the industry and the needs of the people that live out here. We've been known to put orders on helicopters, mail planes and road trains and will do our absolute best get orders out the quickest way possible. If we do not have what you are after in store, we will just order it in, nothing is a problem! So give us a call, drop us a line or send us a message and the friendly team at KCDS will be sure to help you out.
