Well let's start the new year with some really BIG news!
Each year the Gift Industry of Australia and Australian GiftGuide
(together with the International Housewares Association in the USA) chooses the best
Australian retailer that ticks all the boxes in terms of store presentation, visual merchandising, social media and brand identity - this year we are thrilled to announce that LUC. has won!
We will be heading to Chicago in March to represent Australia at the Global Innovations Awards where 5 global winners will be chosen - wish us luck!
Such an honour and so exciting. I am so proud of my team and the store we have created.
Tasmania is a small State and it is always a challenge in any retail environment to be competitive and unique, I sit amongst brilliant retail stores in Hobart and we all punch well above our weight in regards to stock and presentation - we also have to compete with online stores both nationally and internationally - we feel an extra achievement when Tasmania is a winner!
I have awesome suppliers and much of the success of the store is due to the support we have received from these great distributors and major brands.
But mainly we just love what we do. We love this store and the brands we carry, so we hope that passion comes across. And we want to inspire you to love great design and make beautiful objects part of your everyday life.
See you soon Chicago!!
