Meet our Stores: Graphic Art Mart Willawong
November 24, 2023

Step right into the vibrant world of Willawong! Led by the incredible Alex Ferguson, this store opened its doors in March 2020, just before the whirlwind onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the challenging times, the unwavering support from our incredible customers has been the driving force propelling the team from strength to strength.


The Willawong team stands as a beacon of experience and knowledge within the industry, boasting a collective expertise of nearly 180 years. Their commitment to sharing this wealth of knowledge with our customers daily underscores their dedication to providing top-notch service. But amidst their professional prowess, the Team Wong members are always up for a good time.



Recently, Willawong commemorated Graphic Art Mart’s 50th Anniversary with an unforgettable event hosted at Dick Johnson Racing/Shell V Power. Customers indulged in delectable offerings from food trucks while mingling with the Shell V Racing Drivers. Exclusive guided tours of the Shell V racing Team workshops provided a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into their operations. This event fostered invaluable connections between customers and key suppliers, reinforcing stronger relationships and deeper engagement with our brands.




But, enough about the celebrations—let's get cozy with the whole Team Wong crew:
