Our Story

Learn more about the history of Tile Mega Mart

Twenty-five years ago we opened the roller shutter in a warehouse in Smithfield. We opened tile boxes, put a few pieces on top of pallets, put a hand written sign on the footpath inviting passers by to check out the bargains available.

Back then we would clear out tiles that wouldn’t sell in up-market tile shops.  Savvy customers loved the bargains they found in our warehouse, word got around and the store just kept growing with clients coming from all over the state.

Over the years we always had a dream of taking this style of retailing further and now with 3 mega warehouses we continue to bring the best value tiles to customers by ensuring we buy big and we buy well from all over the world, including Australia.

Where our tiles come from

Tile Mega Mart is the sole importer of Portobello products in NSW and the ACT. Portobello designs and manufactures premium quality tiles, building products and finishes in Brazil and distributes them worldwide. While Portobello’s products are predominantly porcelain and ceramic, they have been manufacturing natural wood and clay products too and continue to cast their net widely when it comes to designs and styles.

The products are all at once timeless and trendy, combining the unique culture of Brazil with the contemporary home design global trends. Our buyers visit Brazil often to hand-pick the perfect products for the Australian market, allowing us to have a unique and affordable selection on display at all three of our stores in Rosebery, Smithfield and Newcastle. Tile Mega Mart also supplies wholesale to other showrooms in Australia, but we are the link.
