New main street to be good for business
EXCITEMENT is brewing as the transformation of the main street in Airlie Beach nears completion and local businesses are starting to feel the buzz.
Owner of Blackbird Boutique in Proserpine Bridgette Middleton said she was blown away by how much main street had evolved already and that she was excited to launch her new store in July.
“Looking with the perspective of someone who doesn’t visit the main street often, I remember thinking, ‘wow this place is going to look amazing’,” she said.
“The main street will become a destination which means there will be a great influx of people that will love going there, especially if it’s easy to get around.”
Store manager of Blackbird Boutique Airlie Beach Selena Cleaver said she believes Black- bird Boutique is a unique store that will fit into the new streetscape of Airlie perfectly.
“We style women in quality Australian clothing that fits well, is versatile and looks effortless,” she said.
“We aim to provide exceptional service to help women feel more confident and happy within themselves and we hope this encourages them to shop locally.”
