The Langford Store is nestled in the heart of the Aorere valley, 15 minutes
inland from Collingwood on the way to the Heaphy track.
This general store and post office has been providing essentials to the
Bainham community and travellers since 1928.
Enjoy a pot of tea or an espresso coffee, served with sublime sweet treats.
Soak up the sunshine and the tranquility of the surrounding scenery,
whilst you write a postcard home or just rest a moment with friends.
The store has been in the same family four generations, since it opened in 1928.
EB Langford was the initial proprietor, followed by his grand-daughter Lorna who ran the store and post office for 63 years.
Lorna retired in May of 2008,
handing over the reins to Sukhita Langford, who hopes to do both the community
and family proud by continuing the traditions that her great grandfather
instilled more than 80 years ago.
 

We have turned the storeroom into a gallery space for local artists to exhibit their work.
Current artwork on display is created by Sukhita Langford, Christa Windle, Fleur Woods, Kathy Reilly, Beate Franke and Will Hutchison. We aim to display new artists each season.

The gallery is stacked to the gunnels with a great collection of nostalgic items,
which all add to the charm and beauty of the historic store.
With some quiet jazz playing in the background, great coffee, tea and sweet treats;
you’ve found the perfect place for a trip down memory lane.
