Truckers Toy Store opens in Sydney

Truck accessories outlet Truckers’ Toy Store recently announced it will open a second store in Sydney’s transport hub of Wetherill Park on Monday, 1 July 2013. 

“We’re going through a major growth phase at the moment so we had a look at where the majority of our customer’s came from,” said founder Chad Panettieri.

“It was no surprise to us that most of them were from the Eastern seaboard, mainly NSW and QLD, so we wanted to give them greater access and ensure they don’t have to wait until they get to Melbourne to be able to come and see us.”

According to Panettieri, the company, which is licensed and distributed under ‘The Chrome Shop’ brand, also plans to expand beyond Sydney with more retail stores to launch in Queensland and New Zealand in 2014. “The Kiwis are very similar to us. They drive the same trucks and have the same passion for wanting their rig to look as good as it can,” he said.

“We already have customers who buy from us online or when they’re over here visiting friends and family. Shipping costs get in the way though, so we thought we might as well bring the product to them.”
