About Us


The hardworking Loo family have been in the fruit shop business in Mt Eden for more than sixty years. Sadly, Mr K.C. Loo (pictured), an icon of Mt Eden, passed away on 10 October 2016. However, his legacy lives on via the family fruit shop.


Effective 23 March 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in order to allow us to better manage the health and safety of our staff, we have temporarily adjusted our trading hours to the following:

Daily:                   9am-6pm

Exceptions:        Good Friday (we are closed)

                              Anzac Day morning (we are open 1-6pm)

                              Christmas Day (we are closed)
