A CRETHAR FAMILY TRADITION

The Northern River’s Pool & Billiard Table story is part of the local Crethar family history. It all started around 1978 when young Harry Crethar took possession of a milk bar in Keen Street, on the main city block of Lismore. The popular little shop was located near where Tropicana is today and was called "The Wonder Bar". Even today the shop is remembered by many of the long time Lismore residents. As a young man Harry was a keen pool player, and whenever he could he would nick across the road to the mens only card and amusment club.  There he would take some time to de- stress with a few games of pool with the guys. This interest in pool led Harry to set up a pool table as a central feature in his first picture framing shop, a few doors down from the Wonder Bar.  

MORE THAN 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE

In 1980 the Crethar family moved around the corner to the Norman Ross Building at 69 Magellan Street. There the doors of their new shop were opened, so picture framing and pool table sales and repairs began in earnest. Like many businesses those days, the word got around that this was the place to go for anything in picture framing or pool tables, and the business began to build the reputation that it has today of friendly and professional service. After making the move to Magellan Street, the business quickly grew into Premier Art and Framing and Crethars Pool Tables  and has continued to operate in that location ever since. Now with more than 30 years experience, proprietors Harry and Maria Crethar have a wealth of knowlege that results in good advice and service to their customers. Harry has now retired, but the Crethars continue to operate the combined businesses. Maria now operates Premier Art and Framing with son Spero managing the framing service. Peter and staff manage Crethars Pool Tables.
