UNIVERSAL PROVIDERS SINCE 1905
Maleny IGA is the oldest original commercial premises in Maleny. Locals have been getting their supplies from the “Universal Providers” Building in Maple Street since 1905. Rob and Samantha purchased the business prior to Christmas in 1995 and have transformed it into a modern supermarket, maintaining the intrinsic appeal of a traditional country store.
They are keen supporters of the Arts and we are very proud to have them as the sponsor of the 2017 First Prize for the Obi Art Prize.
