About Us

Status Plus is the premium supplier of electrical appliances Cairns

Welcome to Status Plus, North Queensland’s leading family owned household appliance retailer since 1983. Established by Carolyn Balderson, Status Plus has consistently occupied a unique position in the regional household appliance market, remaining at the forefront of product development while providing an old world shopping experience.

Keen to introduce high performance, long lasting European appliances to Cairns locals, Carolyn commenced operations at 98 Anderson Street with agencies for Miele, Gaggenau, Jennair and Bosch. The rapidly growing population responded positively and the rest is history.

Status Plus is now owned and run by Carolyn’s son Ashley, whose enthusiasm for innovation and entrepreneurial savvy has been integral to the continued success of the business. By the time Ashley joined the business in 1992, Status Plus had relocated to its current location at 51 Anderson Street. Ashley started in timber doors; advanced to management; and finally purchased the business in 2000.

The store itself has undergone significant growth and change. The store was extended and renovated numerous times throughout the 80’s and 90’s and finally in 2009 when the business received a dramatic face lift with the purchase of the adjoining property at 49 Anderson Street (the current showroom occupies 1,100). The 2009 renovation also heralded a new era for Status Plus with the addition of mosaic tiles and bathroom products to the already extensive folio.

Status Plus continues to use its portfolio of brands to differentiate its products and services; and our award winning showroom is one of the most visually stunning displays outside an Australian capital. The showroom is regularly refurbished to demonstrate new trends and consistently attracts leading architects to the store.

After three decades in the industry, we look forward to cementing Status Plus’ reputation as the North’s premier home renovation specialist and to raising the bar for customer service by working harder for you.     

I have to say I was impressed with the service. I like the one stop shop approach. Saves a lot of running around.
