Recently came across DEKA's facebook page and it got me thinking, "Man, it was a fun store for kids... unlike the huge tins we have now called The Warehouse"  Tongue out 

For all those reminiscing their ads:

Yes, Glenfield was the one I went to:) Not to mention Big Fresh that was next door with the rockin' veges - it was always sad when they didn't turn those on, haha:D

I barely remember both Big Fresh and DEKA - the picture of the DEKA sign is the one in Huntly... had a discussion about it when we passed by last week.

I remember them selling the Atari Lynx and wanting one really badly.

DEKA got folded into the Farmers chain in the early 2000s,

DEKA was owned by LD Nathan at the time, which also owned the Woolworths supermarket chain.
