Dot and Mick Veal

Matamata Chronicle - - Celebrating 90 Years Of Service To The Matamata Di -

When Dot & Mick Veal im­mi­grated to New Zealand 7 years ago, they made Mata­mata their home. “When we first ar­rived we stayed with friends while look­ing to buy,” says Dot. “Our friends where very gen­er­ous and gave us a lovely bed to sleep in, but Mick and I wanted to buy our own bed. We went to Water­son’s and they sold us this fab­u­lous bed, but it did weigh quite a bit. Not that that was re­ally a prob­lem be­cause they de­liv­ered it for us, but what was so nice was when we even­tu­ally bought our own home a few months later Water­son’s came and moved our bed to the new place. We had of course bought other fur­ni­ture to go into our home, but that is be­side the point, they didn’t have to move the bed, they just did. The other thing that my hus­band I have loved about shop­ping at Water­sons is that they let you take it home and try it. I re­ally wanted a big square din­ing suite that would seat eight and thought that one would fit in the spot I had planned. They let me take one home to try and it turned that it just didn’t look right, so they sim­ply came and picked it back up. Noth­ing was a bother the ser­vice was fan­tas­tic and of course they found the din­ing suite that was a per­fect fit. I guess the other thing that I wanted to say is that it didn’t mat­ter that we had only just im­mi­grated and that they didn’t know us from a bar of soap, they trusted us. It was just mar­vel­lous.”

Dot and Mick, couldn’t be hap­pier with
