Thank you, we will always endeavor to provide good product and service to our customers. Merry Christmas to everyone from our dedicated staff

Sorry for your experience to our passed 'Cash Only' though as you may not be aware Merimbula is very much a seasonal tourist town where the PAST cost of eftpos terminals meant a cost to our business with a negative return. Finally one bank has...More
