About Us

We're a Proud Member of BuildLink:

BuildLink is a cooperative that allows customers to take advantage of the low price and high quality products only a buying group can offer.

You can get the best of both worlds with BuildLink: shop local while still getting great value for money.

Bream Bay Merchants:

The company began to trade in September 2005 at 15 Kepa Road Ruakaka, after John Layton (owner) realised the potential in the area for a General Merchant. A few months later his wife Wendy joined him. 

Our motto is “where nothing is a problem” where the people of Bream Bay get great service at a competitive price.

In 2008 we joined BuildLink, a cooperative of independent operators, which gave us the opportunity to obtain a greater range of products from our country’s major suppliers.

In September 2008, due to growth, they moved to a bigger site on the corner of Sime & Kepa road Ruakaka.


We have a light truck for our local deliveries which incurs a small fee. Our forklift and our friendly staff are always on hand to help with loading. For larger loads and Hiab handling we can arrange local carriers at an hourly rate.

Call us and have a chat, we're here to help
