Congratulations to the November 2023 Business of the Month; Strandbags Whyalla
After a very successful awards dinner in October, lets start off our next season of Business of the Month with Strandbags Whyalla. The go to shop in Whyalla for all your luggage, handbags, and travel requirements to say the least.
Strandbags was founded back in 1927, and yes to our younger supporters that was last century… They have grown to become a National business that all Australians know. And, besides their online store, they also have 300 physical stores across our country and New Zealand. Their products are seamlessly vast and cover all brand names as well as the very affordable.
Keeping in line with the ever-changing retail environment, the company offers an excellent loyalty program which provides great discounts and click and collect is an option for those wishing to do online shopping. Gift cards are available for those hard to buy for and zip pay means a purchased item can be paid off over time.
Whilst WB&T is biased towards promoting home grown Whyalla interests; on this occasion we’d like to think it’s the five locals that are the friendly faces that people are greeted by that support the Strandbags success. Headed up by the very friendly and professional Dobrila Krstic as store manager, we can see why Strandbags has been so successful here in Whyalla. In fact, Dobrila has been a foundational employee within only a few months of Standbags first coming here twelve years ago so that is a hint of good management for keeping valued staff.
My advice is to keep an eye out this week as Black Friday sales are looming, I’m sure Strandbags Whyalla will be busy.
Please remember, shop local, shop Whyalla…
