Parkes Decor Shoppe was established by Barry and Margaret Robinson in 1975 at the southern end of Clarinda Street. While Barry passed 10 years ago the shop is still going strong with Margaret at the helm and a great team of staff.

       The business was originally started as a wallpaper and lighting centre. In the 1980s wallpaper had reached it's used-by-date and the pair started selling curtains, blinds and awnings. Today window furnishings constitute a major part of the operation.  

      Around the same time, the business joined Lighting Network, a buying group with 50 stores down the east coast of Australia. "This has enabled us to offer our customers a bigger range of home lighting at very competitive prices" says Margaret.

      Margaret is still enthusiastic after four decades at the shop. Most weekends she offers a home consultancy business, offering practical advice on all aspects of lighting and home decorating. For 20 years she has regularly covered areas like Peak Hill, Cudal, Orange, Grenfell, Young, Eugowra, Forbes, Condobolin and smaller outlying areas.

     "We pride ourselves on solid customer service and attention to detail," says Margaret.
