Farmers began in the form of a mail order business called Laidlaw Leeds in 1909. That company soon became the Farmers Union Trading Company, which in 1920 opened its first store selling direct to the public in Auckland. Now Farmers has 58 shops throughout New Zealand, with a store in all the major cities and in many towns.
Farmers has transitioned from a mid-price retailer to a more prestigious department store that sells high-quality, famous brands and focuses on clothing, cosmetics, home furniture, small appliances, toys, and homeware.
Farmers is a New Zealand owned company, and thanks to its long history in the country it receives a lot of support from the public.
Farmers online shop and its physical stores alike often have sales, clearances, promotions, and specials, and customers get great deals throughout the year during the big Thursday sale.
