About Us

We've stayed true to our values from day one.

Since opening our doors in July of 1969 Smith & Church have been proudly serving our local community with the best customer service and quality products.

Establishing our presence in a small corner shop in the Ashburton Arcade, Smith & Church quickly outgrew the premises and soon moved to a new site on the corner of Cass and Tancred Streets, where the retail business was to remain until 1998.

Home appliances and televisions were the specialty back then, although the company has always welcomed change. From videos and microwaves to computers and home heating solutions we’ve embraced new technologies, always striving to offer our customers the latest innovations and the best quality products.

Recently we added beds and furniture to our range, now stocking a large collection of the Tattersfield, Sleepmaker and King Koil brands and offering same-day delivery.

In 2017 we branded as a 100% franchise store. Aligning with a forward thinking, proud New Zealand based business was a natural progression to move with the next generation of customers and meet their ever changing needs.

Today we stock everything from small home appliances, televisions and computing goods to heating solutions, beds, furniture and Weber BBQ's, showcasing them in our large destination showroom on Moore Street.

We offer a spacious and dedicated whiteware and heating divisions and even a Columbus Coffee Café on site. We offer a full professional delivery and installation service and we can dispose of your old appliances for recycling.
