Shoe brand Skechers is just one of the latest stores to open in Hinkler Central, bringing its performance and lifestyle footwear to Bundaberg.
The store opened on Thursday 13 October next to Rockwear, near Woolworths, after parent company Accent Group saw recent success with the opening of Platypus Shoes.
Skechers QLD/NT State Manager Beau Martin said with stores located in Hervey Bay and the Sunshine Coast, the team saw an opportunity to open in Bundaberg.
“We have locations in Hervey Bay and on the Sunshine Coast which have been a go-to for so many of our Bundaberg customers over the past few years, so we knew there was a customer base that loved our product in the area,” Beau said.
“After our parent company Accent Group opened a well-received Platypus store in Bundaberg, we saw the opportunity to bring Skechers into this location as well.
“We have bought the full Skechers range to Bundaberg which is incredibly exciting!
“We have everything from walking and exercise shoes, certified workwear as well as fashion and lifestyle shoes for the whole family – we are truly a one stop shop for everything shoes.”
Beau said the store had employed two managers as well as six casual team members, although in the lead up to Christmas they were on the lookout for new team members.
“We currently have two amazing managers, Rebecca and Amber, as well as six casual team members in our store,” Beau said.
“We are also looking to grow our team further as we head into the busy Christmas period.”
