At Lockhart River, we have two retail outlets which stock a range of fresh meats, fruit and vegetables and other grocery and household items. Due to our remote location and a range of other factors, most items are more expensive than other locations and sometimes freshness and quality can also be of a lower standard.
The Freddy Clarence Moses Store is operated by the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs (DATSIMA). It was named to commemorate Freddy Clarence Moses who was a distinguished leader of the Lockhart River community. To make sure that the store provides the goods and services valued by the Lockhart River community, the store operations are informed by a local advisory committee.
The store has EFTPOS facilities and an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) is inside the store. Self-service unleaded and diesel fuels are also available seven days a week between 8am and 6pm.
Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm
Saturday 8am to noon
For more information about the goods and services available at the Freddy Clarence Moses Store, contact the manager on 07 4060 7192.
The other retail outlet in Lockhart River is The Anglican Church Shop (more commonly referred to as Jamie’s Store) which is privately owned and operated. Jamie’s Store is open most nights and on Sundays and is well stocked with both fresh and packaged grocery and household items. To contact Jamie’s Store, call 07 4060 7368.
