Business in Rotorua : A Spotlight on Sheaf’s Pharmacy

 A Spotlight on Sheaf’s Pharmacy


This pharmacy operated in Tutanekai Street from 1928 to 2003. First owned by D. Sheaf 1928-1957 then Mr Ross Wells 1957-2003.

 I remember it always in it's location at 272 Tutanekai Street for many years, the street number changed some years ago, after Sheaf's closed, this location housed McKenzie Fashions (closed 2015) and currently undergoing renovation (see image below).

The Wises Street Directories 1940-1955 list the street number as 132.
