IT'S HARD to miss the new Harwood Farm Store - the outside of the building has had a new lick of paint and almost everyone who passes by has stopped to comment, many pulling out their camera to take a quick snap.

New owners Gary and Sharon Holloway have been overwhelmed with the positive response they have received.

They praised the work of Brooms Head artist Linda Elmir they commissioned to create the larger-than-life artwork.

"We're over the moon with the mural Linda painted for us," said Gary.

"It's something we wanted and she made it up, piecing together our ideas and using her skill and knowledge to bring it alive - it just grabs your attention.

"It's been a big hit and people tell us it's really livened up the town, turning what was just an old shed into a work of art.

"We wanted to have an impact and I think we've done it."

Mr Holloway said when the previous rural store closed down several months ago, the community was left with an empty building and it had been a real loss to the small town.

"It was a service sadly missed - we have a farm at Chatsworth and we missed it," he said.

"We could see there was a need for it in the community and so we are happy to have the store open again."

The family business has employed their sons as well as one of the workers from the previous store.

The Harwood Farm Store supplies rural needs including fencing, stockfeeds, pet supplies, farm chemicals and more to the Clarence Valley.
