Geostuff.com.au has new owners !
As of the 1st July 2018, Geostuff, Australia and New Zealand’s Biggest and Best Geocaching Store, is now owned and run by John and Di Baxter (AKA SnappyTomCats) of Australia Wide Badges in Nuriootpa, South Australia.
Geostuff was founded in April 2010 in Melbourne by Carl (iamapom) and Deb (mrsiamapom), and has since then delivered over 20000 orders to customers worldwide, at events and face-to-face at the Geostuff retail store.
John and Di plan to house Geostuff in their walk-up retail setting in Nuriootpa South Australia. This will provide a better service to Geocachers as the store is open normal business hours as well as being available 24x7 online and has plenty of staff.
Congratulations to John and Di !
Carl, Deb and Woody would like to thank all of our thousands of customers over the past eight years. We started with a packet of Nanos in a drawer and five envelopes from Kmart ! We’d also like to thank family and friends who supported us and worked the shop for us while we were on holiday.
