Shoppers can't wait to get their hands on 'going out clothes' and it's not surprising considering that we've just come out of a three-month COVID-19 lockdown.
Tracey Whitehead, co-owner of 'Something For...', a ladies clothing and homewares boutique at Engadine, said welcoming back her customers in-store was "filled with all kinds of emotions" when she threw open the doors on Freedom Day.
"I was very much looking forward to seeing everyone as our customers are more like friends," Ms Whitehead said.
Number-one on many shoppers' to-buy lists were clothes, as "they are fed up with wearing the COVID clothes" according to Ms Whitehead. They were also after items they could use while reconnecting with their loved ones.
"Customers have been purchasing a lot of wine picnic tables and things to get back with their families," she said. "Our wine glass coasters have been another popular purchase."
Having relocated the store to the current premises only a year ago, the lockdown was trying, however the regulars are already coming back to support the business.
"We are so grateful for the love, support and kindness we have been shown in the last few months while we have been in lockdown," Ms Whitehead said.
"We are looking forward to a brighter future and look forward to sharing our journey with our customers.
"As a local family-run business, like many others we need your support. Community is everything and local business is the heart of your community."
Before lockdown, the team was able to raise $1000 from kindhearted customers to put towards the purchase of a defibrillator which is now in-store in case of emergency in the community.
