Welcome to the Goodstone Group
The Goodstone Group was established in Ulverstone in 1988 with the development of the Lighthouse Hotel as a partnership between Ulverstone identities Peter Johnstone and Kerry Good. In December 1998 the growth of the group began with the addition of more venues, and is still growing today. In 2003 the formation of the marketing group Big Bargain Bottleshops extended into the external bottleshop market and at full development boasted 53 members state-wide. The ownership of Big Bargain was sold to Metcash in 2016.
