Big on ShoesThursday, February 28, 2019

Big On Shoes stocks a range of bespoke ladies shoes, accessories, local artwork and most recently welcomed clothing into the range. We pride ourselves on our beautiful quality shoes in ladies sizes 5-15. We opened doors a little over 3 years ago in the City Centre and absolutely love being apart of this wonderful community. We were attracted to the City Centre over any other location in Mackay as we felt our store was unique and that it would be best suited to this area along with the other small business retailers in the centre. We love the City Centre because of the supportive small business community, the events throughout the year and the wonderful selection of food venues on offer.

We would love to have a collaborative late-night trade in the City Centre and feel that either a Thursday or Friday night would be perfect for this. This is something that we do offer throughout the year between months March-December. We also offer Sunday trading during the busy times of the year and would love to see other retailers open as well. We have seen big changes in the City over the past months with the opening of new business around us and are excited for the year ahead with the news of some others opening up as well. We would love to see more small business open in the Centre to really create a unique space for Mackay to come and enjoy as well as look at pushing the area more towards a tourist destination.

Starting a business is certainly hard, everyone knows that. Our advice for anyone starting is to find the right advisors earlier than later so that you have a team backing you and understanding where you are heading. Secondly always make sure you take a moment to enjoy and reflect on your hard work, often we forget to take those little moments to realise that we have accomplished something pretty wonderful because of all the time and work life pressure. Standing back and looking at what you have built can sometimes make the hardest days’ worth it.
