About The Store
The Evandale Village Store is located in the quaint heritage village of Evandale, only a short 15 minute drive from the centre of Launceston. The shop is in the original village store that was built in 1843. It was purpose built as a general store and has operated continuously since. The shop interior still has the original 1843 fitout with an Australian cedar counter and solid pine (celery top, king billy and baltic) shelving with a cedar lip. Due to its completeness and condition it has a Heritage Preservation order and has been listed with the National Heritage Register.
In it's current incarnation, The Evandale Village Store has a beautifully curated collection of things from both Tasmania, the Mainland and from further afield - including Europe, New Zealand and the US.
