Upper Hutt Leader : November 23rd 2011
19 UPPER HUTT LEADER, NOVEMBER 23, 2011 NEWS The Liquor Centre is a success story. What started as a couple of stores 20 years ago has grown to become the largest liquor chain in New Zealand with over 170 stores. While most chains actively pursue members to join their groups, the Liquor Centre has operated differently and has grown simply through positive word of mouth. This is as a result of their solid foundation, with a good management team and great store operators. There is nothing 'corporate' about how the business is run, and they are proud of it. The independence and ownership structure of Liquor Centre results in prompt and precise decision making. Considered to be the best value for money liquor chain in the industry, the Liquor Centre model is a proven winner. Liquor Centre has maintained having the lowest franchise fees and the lowest overheads over the past 20 years and still has some of the best benefits. In fact over this period there has just been only one minimal rise in franchise fees. Liquor Centre places importance on relationships, not numbers and views its outlets as part of a Liquor Centre family. They really value their customers and unlike supermarkets, place an emphasis on the personal touch with no queues, no waiting and staff who are always prepared to offer advice. In October Liquor Centre launched their VIP club, which is growing bigger and bigger each day. Every month VIP members go into the draw to win amazing prizes such as televisions, smartphones, travel etc. On top of this each store offers free giveaways on all product groups each month of the year, to anyone who walks into the store. Liquor Centre is currently undergoing a big re-branding and is constantly innovating, adapting and growing, without sacrificing the quality of products or customer service. Check out their website www.liquor-centre.co.nz or look them up on Facebook for more information.

Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN Love lives on after 60 years By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Acouple committed to each other and their five chil- dren have celebrated 60 years of marriage. Freda and Keith Dyhrberg say they have hardly been apart in those years except for times in hospital. They say neither has wanted anyone else and they never thought of splitting up, especially because of the impact on their children. She was always there for the children,'' Mr Dyhrberg says. Freda, nee Johnson, and Keith Dyhrberg met when both worked at James Smith's department store in Wellington. Mrs Dyhrberg was born and raised in South Otago. Her future husband, who is of Danish descent, was born and grew up in Wellington. The Johnson family moved to Wellington when Mrs Dyhrberg was 15. She was sweet 16'' when she met her future husband. He was a window dresser and she worked at the jewellery counter. We caught each other's eye,'' she says. Their first date was the movies. They also loved dancing. Mr Dyhrberg joined the print- ing trade where he was to build a career. The couple dated for three years and became engaged when Mrs Dyhrberg was 18. They married at St Aidan's Anglican Church, Miramar, on November 10, 1951. Their first home was a flat below a house on The Terrace. It had two rooms but no proper kitchen and bathroom. They got water from an outside tap. It was primitive but similar to the homes of many other newlyweds. After four years and the arrival of two children they moved to Upper Hutt where they got a Housing Corporation loan to build in Brentwood St. A Wellington builder had recommended Upper Hutt to them as the railway line had been electrified. Brentwood School was being built when they moved to Upper Hutt. They had been married for 15 years before they bought their first car. They lived 42 years in Brentwood St and raised five chil- dren there. Mr Dyhrberg became a keen gardener. They moved to their present home because they needed a smaller, easy-care section. Mrs Dyhrberg was a trained dressmaker and worked from home for many years. Later she did 20 years of home help for Hutt Hospital. Both are keen sports followers, especially rugby, and belong to the Upper Hutt Cossie Club. The couple have five children (Christine Wilmott, Queensland, Bruce, Robert, David and Joanne Hodges, all Upper Hutt), 10 grandchildren and seven great- grandchildren. The Dyhrbergs say they are very lucky'' to have so many of their family in Upper Hutt. They celebrated with a family dinner on their anniversary, which was also son David's 50th birthday, and a weekend function at the Cossie Club that included family members from Australia. The couple received congratu- latory messages from the Queen, Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae, Prime Minister John Key, Minister of Internal Affairs Nathan Guy and the MP for Rimutaka, Chris Hipkins, and flowers from Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy.
