Featured Business: Murwillumbah Marquee and Party Hire

Greg and Ruth Smith

FOR THE past 20 years Greg and Ruth Smith have been part of thousands of local lives across Murwillumbah and the Tweed Valley helping people celebrate their important moments.

Weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, music & food festivals, markets, Easter, Christmas and community events and celebrations. What an honour!

The business grew from humble beginnings when equipment from Greg’s school camp at Kunghur was lent out around town. The inventory of hire items soon grew. Ten years ago when his own children were to learn how business operates, they each bought 8 chairs.

Now they have shares in chairs (Greg as Chairman) and make some pocket money on each hire.

Ruth says: “It’s amazing how many people in the Valley want to sit down! Once one of our gorgeous white marquees is up then tables, white cloths and chairs logically follow to create inviting spaces. Since no celebration is complete without cold beer and drinks the mobile cool rooms, glasses, crockery etc are part of the business’s DNA making an organiser’s job so easy. In appreciation of our regular and local customers Greg and Ruth deliver for free. That keeps customer costs down and the money in town.”

Here’s what the locals had to say: “Hi Greg, Just a quick note to say thanks to you, for the marquee & accessories supplied for the 2016 Tyalgum Music Festival and the on time delivery, set up and dismantle as well. It was ideal because it was wet weather proof …The Monks & organisers were very happy,” Wendy (organsiser).

Murwillumbah Marquee and Party Hire is now for sale and our current busy season is a great time to take on a profitable business. Why not own a small business that can be easily grown? Call Greg on 0429872386 or Ruth on 0448649150
