Geelong Lamp & Element Shoppe commenced trading on July 1, 1988 in the Centrepoint Arcade, Geelong. The family business is owned and operated by David and Jannine Dolley. David came from an Electrical wholesaling background and Jannine from a background in banking and distribution.
They began specialising in selling only light globes and elements. But after a while David realised that there was a need in the market place for appliance spare parts.
Having quickly outgrown the Centrepoint Arcade shop, then Mercer St, Geelong and NOW, May 2017, they have relocated to their current position at Unit 3/ 156 Victoria St, North Geelong. In 1990 they became authorized spare parts distributors for Electrolux whitegoods covering well-known household brands like Kelvinator, Simpson, Westinghouse, Chef, and Hoover. The early years saw a period of rapid growth in the demand for spare parts for both retail customers and the service industry. We not only supply parts to the Geelong, Surfcoast, and Bellarine area. We also take inquiries and deliver to most parts of Western Victoria all the way down as far as Portland.
As our business grew, so did our need to employ local people to service our customers.
As we have moved into the 21st century with lots of changes in today’s world. We thought that the Geelong Lamp & Element Shoppe needed an update. Hence ‘Geelong Appliance Spares‘ has evolved along with our new refreshed logo.
It has been a short but rewarding 32 years in business, David and Jannine have enjoyed the challenge of helping their customers find the parts required for their appliances. Sometimes this has been easy and sometimes not so easy BUT David has always said that if he can’t get the part for you then no one can. David has a phenomenal memory for spare parts and part numbers. If you want a common part or an unusual part for an appliance, come in and see David and he will bend over backward to help you.
