About Army and Outdoors

The Story of South-Pacific Army Surplus

Army and Outdoors - also known as Kiwi Disposals - has been around for a while now, more than 30 years' actually. From a small warehouse taking wholesale orders to now operating three retail stores (Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch) and a busy website serving New Zealand and the world.

Recently we changed our name to Army and outdoors from Kiwi Disposals. We thought this better described our range of products and services.  In 2011 we lost our iconic Colombo Street store in Christchurch to an earthquake, which was a bit of a bugger. Our flagship Auckland store servicing New Zealand's largest city and our pioneering online shop kept the business on track.

Our Colombo street store in ruins Christchurch 2011.

Our customers come from all walks of life. Hunters looking for the perfect camouflage to film makers sourcing props for the latest sci-fi flick.  This is not your standard outdoors store. People we speak to have an expectation of finding hard-wearing, quality gear at a reasonable price. Our ever growing range of stock keeps people returning in-store and online.

Currently we have a store in Auckland, an outlet store in Christchurch, a new store in Hamilton as of Winter 2016 and our online store.
