Wing On …… Your family store
Exciting tales of vast fortunes to be made and new worlds to be pioneered spread through a wearied China in the late 19th century. There had been the fabled "Gold Mountain" of California in the 1840s and, by 1890, a "New Gold Mountain" was being whispered, far to the south in Australia. For one eighteen-year- old farm lad, Gock Lock, in Guangdong Province, the lure was irresistible, so he set off for Melbourne, Australia. Tough-minded, energetic and enterprising, young Gock Lock was ready within three years to venture on his own. Later, with successful business management and integrity, he established his first grocery named "Wing On", and sow the seed for the century-old enterprise.
