Owners Darryl and Vicky Spicer have called Gatton home for many years now. Having raised their kids in the region who have now grown up themselves, and are having kids of their own. The Spicers have owned and operated the store since 2009.

Originally when they started it was a NewsXpress Franchise, however in recent years they have undergone some changes in order to take the look and feel of the store back to the good ol' days!


Gatton is a region richly steeped in history with an agriculture background at its core. Still to this day, it maintains a rural charm of a small country town with all the modern elements. The Spicers wanted to embrace this quality and hence changed the name to Gatton, News, Gift, Stationery & Lotto.

While still keeping true to being a newsagent, they have added extra warmth and love with a new range of giftware, childrens clothes and much more!

Why not visit the store today to see for yourself!
