Black Rock Authorised Newsagency is a family owned and operated business and have enjoyed being active with their local bayside community.

They are proud to have had local artists produce amazing murals on their outside wall, which has engaged their community. The mural of the frontline workers made the news and was featured in The Age along with Helen’s daughter and granddaughter and has been used in advertising on TV & online.

Black Rock Authorised Newsagency supports local schools & businesses with donations for fundraising and were proud to be associated with the Bush Fire Appeal,  conducted by S Lounge Black Rock, in January 2020.

During COVID-19, they have been fortunate to continue to trade as normal with COVIDSafe plans in place. During this time they have been able to expand their range of products to cater for their amazing community who were shopping local.

Their range of products is refreshed and restocked frequently to engage their customers. Major calendar dates are always celebrated and their customer will always find a promotion in store.

Helen personally has been in or around Black Rock most of her life and loves her local community. Black Rock residents thrive on being involved in anything that is positive & they work hard to ensure they are a happy & safe community, it really is Black Rock Village.
