Kelly’s Wodonga may have changed appearances in recent years, but the owners and the service are still the same with Adrian (AJ) and Shelley still managing the store under the Kelly’s Mitre 10 Wodonga brand.
The husband and wife team have been operating the business since 2006, starting as Kelly’s Wodonga. They rebranded to Mitre 10 in July 2016.
“We are still the same business as we were when we were Kelly’s,” said AJ. “We just added some additional Mitre 10 products to our existing lines. Even though we are just a husband and wife business, we are backed with the buying power of Mitre 10, NRI and AIS, which means that our prices are competitive with the big corporate enterprises.”
Agricultural retail has been in the Kelly blood for some time. Adrian’s father, Des Kelly, was a stock and station agent as was his father.
“You can quite often see any of our four kids in the business as well. Samson now works on one of the counters and Zach helps customers out with their needs and loading cars. Cate and Isla help with putting stock away and cleaning shelves on occasions. Also our niece Gabbs has joined our team, and she is a great asset.
“We are blessed to be surrounded by great people, both at work and at home. Our team at Kelly’s are amazing, I can’t speak highly enough of what a great group we have and how they make it a brilliant place to come to every day,” said AJ.
