New Mun­dub­bera shoe store opens with a mu­si­cal twist

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A NEW shoe store in Mun­dub­bera comes with a lit­tle bit of a mu­si­cal twist.

Meg Cun­ning­ham is the owner of Mu­sic Room Shoes, which opened its doors in April.

“The idea has come from my teach­ing room as I teach pi­ano and vi­o­lin out the back and I thought, what would I call the store?” Mrs Cun­ning­ham said.

“When peo­ple are in the store they’ll be hear­ing mu­sic.”

At the new store, there is also a room for chil­dren to keep them­selves en­ter­tained while their par­ents shop.

Mrs Cun­ning­ham said she de­cided it would be a good con­cept for fam­i­lies.

“We have the room at the back where the chil­dren can play and lis­ten to mu­sic while par­ents can just shop in peace,” Mrs Cun­ning­ham said.

“We’re still set­ting up the room but that’s what it will be used for, so par­ents can come along and shop for shoes.”

Mu­sic Room Shoes is cater­ing for ev­ery­one’s shoe needs in the re­gion.

“Our main prod­ucts that we’re sell­ing are Colorado and Diana Fer­rari brands,” Mrs Cun­ning­ham said.

“We’ve also gone into Clarks and Bata school shoes, gar­den­ing shoes, Slog­gers, walk­ing shoes, Mon­grel and Bata in­dus­trial boots, K&J san­dals, and we’ve also got kid shoes from Wal­nut shoes down in Mel­bourne.”

“Our shop caters for mums and dads, ba­bies, chil­dren, adults, and we’ve also got foot­ball boots com­ing in shortly which will be a great as­set for those in­ter­ested in play­ing sports.

“It’s taken a while to get them in but they should be here in the next few weeks.”

Since its open­ing, Mrs Cun­ning­ham said a wide range of peo­ple had walked through the doors.

“It has been very suc­cess­ful so far, our main seller is prob­a­bly the Diana Fer­rari brand as well as Colorado,” Mrs Cun­ning­ham said.

“Our open­ing hours are 11am to 5pm Mon­day to Fri­day and Satur­day morn­ings our shop is open from 9am to 12pm.”
