Yowie Bay, shops


Corner Shops were once common throughout the suburbs of Sydney. Sometimes also known as General Stores, the introduction of supermarkets, shopping centres and convenience stores has seen the end of many of these small businesses. Yowie Bay is a suburb that doesn't have many shops, so the Yowie Bay General Store (top) thrives in this community. Apart from a liquor shop and a cafe, the only other major business in the suburb is the Yowie Bay Marina which uses this old timber house for its front office (bottom).
