Turners Turns 81

By Uncategorized

Sydney Hugh Turner with Texan entrepreneur Robert Lee Hearn opened a store in Mossman in 1936 selling bicycles and gramophone sets. Later that year, on his own, Syd opened a store in Cairns called Sydney H Turner (Appliances) and the rest is history. During the 50’s and 60’s Syd had the franchise for STC Appliances and opened stores all over NQ (from Townsville – Atherton).
Syd’s son Gary took over the business in 1978 and now the business is being run by Gary’s son Brendan.
That makes for 3 generations of Turners proudly servicing the Cairns region for over 80 years!!
