Bridglands Betta Home Living

Rob Bridgland, owner and operator of Bridglands Betta Home Living, has some very important information to share, particularly in the context of this shop local campaign: 'Small businesses are always under threat from the big conglomerates. If you can, always try your local business first before you buy online or go out of town – our collection of small local businesses add to the character and sustainability of your town.'

Bridglands was established in 1908 and to this day is still owned and operated by  the fourth generation of the Bridgland family. The store is your local Betta Home Living Store selling a wide range of electrical, furniture and bedding goods, being part of a 200-strong buying cooperative ensures you are always buying at the best price.

When asked why people come to his store, Rob Bridland said, 'People are often surprised when they shop at Bridglands at the range and competitive prices they find plus the Bridglands team are a happy team which makes shopping more fun and enjoyable for customers.'

Rob says the diversity of Mullumbimby is something that instantly draws people to the town, and always makes for an interesting shopping experience. 'The mix of oldtimers and newcomers makes Mullum a fascinating place', he says.
