The Clennett family’s involvement in the timber industry extends well back over a hundred years to the establishment of a timber mill by William Longstaff Clennett in 1885 at "Stanmore" near Dover. The former family timber business had a retail division, managed by John Clennett, which had two Mitre 10 stores located at Moonah and Rosny.
This business was sold in 1988 at which time John resolved to establish a new Mitre 10 business in the Huon Valley. The intervening years saw the business change considerably, from initially comprising two stores at Huonville and Geeveston, then a store at Cygnet and later a store at Channel Court in Kingston.
The constant development and rationalisation of the business culminated in the construction of two highly successful purpose-built stores operating today at Huonville and Kingston. In 1998, the company purchased the old Sunshine Nursery site adjacent to the Kingston Mitre 10 store and developed The Fork in the Road Garden Centre.
The business today remains committed to continual growth and development. In order to achieve this we strive to maintain an environment which reflects the best parts of a real family business.
Our continued success relies on providing career opportunities for our people and on building and maintaining positive relationships with our customers and the wider community. We will always endeavour to better serve the needs of our customers because we understand that in hardware "customers are really everything".
