How it all began.
Welcome to Dunedin Store – brought to you by the trusted experts and lovers of all things Ōtepoti Dunedin; Firebrand.
It all began as a crazy idea from Firebrand during the Covid 19 pandemic. We were back to work under lockdown circumstances and adapting to the new 'norm'. Together, with a few key partners, we made a commitment - to build a single location FOR FREE so that our local community could find, contact and support businesses under extraordinary circumstances. Since then, Dunedin Store has continued to provide locals, and visitors, with a one stop online shop.
Dunedin Store is now more than just an online business directory; we are on a mission to build a strong, sustainable and successful Ōtepoti, Dunedin. How? By continuing to support both local businesses & people, as well as visitors to the region.
Firebrand has now taken its commitment to the local Dunedin community one step further; developing a new and improved platform that provides Ōtepoti Dunedin's locals and visitors with the easiest way to buy, the best way to sell and the ideal way to access support & education for local businesses.
