Parap Newsagency

I am a bit of a newsagency/ stationary store addict.

I go out of my way to go to Parap Newsagency, as my closest newsagent is at Nightcliff.  In fact, Deborah and Phil used to own the Nightcliff Newsagency, which we used to patronise a lot.

What impresses me about Deborah and Phil is how they get to know each of their clients, personally.  Even though we were their clients at Nightcliff, they still remember us when we go to their Parap store.  That is perhaps one of the main reasons I like going to their store.

Parap Newsagency has all the latest newspapers and magazines and has a well priced stationary section, which I often visit and purchase from.

All the same, Deborah had a knack of ordering in a lovely range of giftware at very reasonable prices at their Nightcliff store when they had it and I especially loved buying gifts at Easter and Christmas.  I am not sure if they are doing this at the Parap store and will need to check next time I am there.

Now, if you like good quality olive oil, Phil and Deborah stock Brini from the Adelaide Hills (cold pressed extra virgin olive oil).  Not sure how much it is, as we were very fortunate to be given a bottle as a gift – I will be going back for more.

The Nightcliff Newsagency has new owners, not as friendly, but by the same token we don’t go in their as much.  There is a range of gifts (also reasonably priced) and they still do have one of the best greeting card selections in town.  By the way, the stationary range is not to bad either.
