Con George Poulos was born in Karavas in 1916. His parents were Yeoryi Dimitri Tzortzopoulos, and Olympia Tzortzopoulos.

Con arrived in Australia, as a member of the Greek Merchant Navy. He had been employed as a merchant mariner, for many years.

In Australia he went initially to visit sister Katina, and brother Myna in Goulburn, and Crookwell, before moving to work for, and for a short time, partner, brother Peter, in the Warren Fruit Shop.

The Warren shop was not large enough to support two families. Con ventured all over NSW in serach for a business to buy. Con learned of a business opportunity in the neighbouring central western town of Gilgandra. He purchased the Gilgandra Fruit Shop business at 41 Miller Street, Gilgandra, from fellow Kytherian, Jack Pentes in 1949. He paid £1,200 for the privelege.

After marrying in 1951, Con and Angie lived in Gilgandra for the next 20 years.
