About this object

A maroon vinyl nail buffer with merchandising from Ralph's Foodland, Waimatuku.

This country store was owned and operated by Ralph and Wendy Cass in the 1970s but ultimately proved uneconomic as supermarkets dominated. Wendy was a District Nurse in Riverton for many years and after the store closed Ralph taught wood work at Aparima College.
