Gilchrist store has stood the test of time and managed to trade its way very successfully through some major world events including two world wars, the 1930s depression to name a few and now a world pandemic. The business really came into its own during the Covid 19 pandemic having two essential services being the shop and the local post service. The local community are lucky to have such a great service available to them and were even more appreciative during lock down. Not only could the community receive mail but they could also send mail even from remote farms in the area. They could even receive some groceries as well as all their post requirements.
