Griffith Italian Heritage Trail

03 – The Broadway Store

47 Kooyoo Street, Griffith

One of the earliest small businesses which catered for the growing Italian community in Griffith was the Broadway Store. Opened in the mid-1930s, it is believed to be the first continental grocery store in Griffith, selling olive oil, pasta and other food and household goods imported from Italy. It meant that Italians no longer had to travel to Sydney to obtain such items. The store closed in the late 1950s.
