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 always at the right price.
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 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 a 1,200m² ++ footprint). The 2009 renovation also heralded a new era for Status Plus with the addition of mosaic & pool tiles and bathroom products to the already extensive folio.
Status Plus continues to use its ever expanding portfolio of brands to differentiate its products and services; and our award winning showroom is the most visually stunning destination outside a capital city. The store is regularly refurbished and updated to demonstrate new trends and consistently attracts leading architects and designers to the store.
After over three decades in the industry, Status Plus’ reputation as the North’s premier renovation and building specialist is well known and respected, constantly raising the bar for customer service by working harder for you.
I recently rang Status Plus to enquire about a replacement ceramic glass cooktop. I do not live in the Cairns area. Ashley at Status Plus advised me that the cooktop I was seeking was no longer available but that he would find one with the same measurements and of similar quality and appearance. He did this. He then arranged transport, installation by a local electrician and the removal of the broken top. Within a few days the cooktop was bought, packaged, transported and installed. The customer service I received from Ashley at Status Plus was excellent with the whole process very thoughtfully and efficiently handled. The cooktop could not have been chosen better...it fits all the requirements.
