Dave’s Work ‘N’ Safety Gear started as a home based, mobile business with Dave selling clothing and footwear to local companies around the Riverland district. After working from home for 7 years they expanded the business to having a shop front, where they also started adding custom designed company logos to clothing as requested from customers. After only 2 more years the need to expand again arrived again. Dave and Effie acquired the local Thrifty link store and incorporated the 2 companies together into the store they have today which still retains their original Idea of delivering clothing and footwear to the local area, with a mobile vehicle.
There is now hardware, safety, camping, outdoor living, automotive and marine products added to the versatile store with a team of 6 staff and themselves there is an extensive knowledge of products.
Dave with over 30 years experience in retail, also spent a long career with the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service, and since that time has increased his knowledge and qualifications in the area of fire and respiratory protection, dangerous goods, road safety and fishing just to name a few.
Dave and Effie’s team now comprises of Bruce, Jason, Lisa, Tarnia, and Teresa. Who all come from different backgrounds with their experiences, however there is no shortage of knowledge of a wide range of items stock in the shop.
