I took over the Timaru store in 2007, the Oamaru store in 2008 and the Ashburton store in early 2010. All three stores had been in operation for many years but needed rejuvenating and re- focussing to include a wider age group of women customers. We now cater for women aged 35+. Did you have any previous experience in women’s fashion?
When I was younger I wanted a break from nursing so managed a women’s clothing shop in Christchurch for a while before I had a family. What have you enjoyed the most about becoming a retailer?
Meeting the needs of our customers – by offering a great selection of clothes and accessories, most of which are exclusive to our stores and by offering a level of service that includes honest advice and always going the extra mile.
