Success Story

ARCADIA CROOKWELL at 77 Goulburn Street, Crookwell was opened in December 2014.

Walking through the doors the eye is drawn to the architecture of the grand old building which has been lovingly restored; dating back to the late 1930s from when the building was rebuilt after being destroyed by fire.

Inside, the shopper can discover an array of speciality shops, showcasing some of our local product mixed with retailers from Lucknow and Young. Arcadia offers a unique shopping experience focusing on quality and competitive pricing.

Owners of the building, Christine Seaman along with David and Geraldine Johnson have brought the iconic building back to life and have opened the doors offering a multitude of businesses in the one space. They said, “We are happy to offer shoppers a point of difference, whether it is an antique furniture piece or a handmade item of clothing.”

The building has been an iconic part of Crookwell since the main street took shape, it is a historic home of beautiful things.

New visitors and return visitors who come to Crookwell are surprised to find the mixed businesses nestled into one convenient location.

You will find everything from fashion, preloved books, antiques, collectables and desirables, furniture, homewares, beautiful gifts, new publications and much, much more.

The spaces for retail are hotly sought after and as soon as one leaves the floor space is filled.

“We are always having enquiries for space, which is encouraging for business,” Ms Seaman explains.

“We feel we fill a niche in the shopping precinct with the variety we offer.”

“Our business is now established and we thank the locals for being so welcoming and supportive.”

“One-third of our business comes from out of town; and most if this is conducted on the weekends.”

“It is important to offer visitors and families who come home an attraction for shopping.”

 “When people walk through the doors they look around at the grandeur of the building and discover something they didn’t expect.”

Pop in, say hello, and if you haven’t experienced the shopping delight of Arcadia, we suggest you take a look at what’s on offer.

We love offering something special to our local community and especially putting together events such as fashion parades and antique appraisal days. These are becoming part of what Arcadia has to offer the town.
