Historical information

McKittrick's Toodyay General Store, 1969-1984
On 1 December 1969 Maureen and Fred McKittrick took over the Toodyay General Store in the Jager building, running a supermarket, newsagency and Golden Fleece fuel agency from the site. Throughout the 1970s the business expanded, and in 1973 was advertised as a Safeway store. In June 1977 the original section of the building was granted a National Trust classification and in 1979 a new self-service grocery section was added. In 2022 the Christmas 360 shop was trading at these premises.
