In 1951 the Chapley family launched their first business venture, when they purchased a run down café in the small NSW town of Moulamein. Then, in 1954, the family bought a mixed business store in Redcliffs VIC, providing customers with produce, deli and grocery lines. In 1968, they acquired another store that was twice the size of their Redcliffs one which meant that other departments could be introduced, like meat, variety and liquor. This store had 8 checkouts and 40 full-time employees.
A year later the community was being supplied several thousand lamb, pork and beef bodies per week at retail and wholesale level. The focus still remained on the supermarket, so in late 1978, the store in Redcliffs and the meat wholesale business were sold in preparation for the move to Adelaide in 1979.
