The Bernardi family had been successful retailers in Forbes for 25 years when the first Discount Dave’s store opened in 1994. The initiative was founded by David Bernardi who was visiting his wife’s brother in Gilgandra & whilst in town stumbled across a local discount store. He immediately felt the concept could work in the family’s hometown Forbes market & quickly went to work visiting importers in Sydney to stock the new store in Forbes.
The store quickly became a popular icon in the town, and busloads of shoppers from other towns regularly came to browse the thousands of items on sale. Following the success of the original store the Discount Dave’s brand with its own distinctive black and orange colours has been expanded in partnership with four more Bernardi’s Supermarkets in the Central West, and stand-alone stores in Parkes and Cowra.
