Howards Storage World started as a single store called “Stack and Store” in Northbridge in the early seventies, owned and operated by Les and Edda Howard.
A partnership was formed with Dirk Spence in 1997 after establishing the Australia wide market potential to roll out the concept through franchising.
The first franchise store opened in 1998 and since then, Howards Storage World has experienced rapid growth. Alex Dobrin became a partner in the company after successfully operating the 8th Franchise store at Warringah Mall, adding to the group his depth of hands on retail knowledge.
As at January 2009 we have 64 stores with more openings planned throughout 2009.
A range of Howards Storage World branded products are now manufactured exclusively for our stores and are clearly identified with our unique labeling. Given our specialisation in storage and organisation for the home, we search the world for the very best solutions and deliver them in store to the highest quality.
Howards Storage World is a retail franchise operation selling all forms of space saving and organisational products for the home and office. In a world where living space is at a premium, simplifying the way we live with "everything in its place" is a growing need for people who lead busy lives.
Our product categories include kitchen, bathroom, laundry, bedroom, office, living room, garage, kids, wine, wardrobe and elfa.
Franchisees come from all walks of life, but ideally enjoy relating to people. After the Howards Storage World training programme, they are equipped with the knowledge to offer their customers advice on all their home storage needs.
