In January 1988, Ailsa Hogan owned the store, known as Hogan's General Store and lived in the annexe next to the store. The store also had a small cafe which sold cold and hot drinks and snacks. Ailsa sold the store to Celia Stewart in 1988 and Celia renamed it Celia's Store. In 1989, Philip Matheson, the uncle of Steven Matheson, died in an arson attack when Dodge - (Brian Forbes) threw a petrol bomb through the front door. Philip died in the flames. Celia then merged with Alf's liquor store until the insurance settlement came in for a new store which they ran together.
The original store was demolished and it is probable the land has either been redeveloped or not built on at all, the land is just a few hundred yards to the right of Summer Bay Surf Club.
