WHIT­SUN­DAY res­i­dents are start­ing to no­tice the red and pur­ple hut at the Cannonvale Mar­kets, but owner Jenni Was­son says don’t be de­ceived by its small ex­te­rior as the new busi­ness has a whole lot on of­fer.

The Hut Whit­sun­days is a unique lo­cal busi­ness of­fer­ing a range of prod­ucts and ser­vices in­clud­ing sign writ­ing, shoe re­pairs, dry clean­ing and al­ter­ations, gar­den and prop­erty main­te­nance, mu­si­cal in­stru­ment sales, hire and re­pairs, live mu­sic book­ings, pro­mo­tions, tourist in­for­ma­tion and air­port trans­fers to name a few.

The Hut is the brain­child of Whit­sun­day lo­cal Jenni Was­son, who has over 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing in sales, mar­ket­ing and the mu­sic in­dus­try.

It is an in­te­grated net­work­ing busi­ness that as­sists cus­tomers by find­ing a busi­ness, ser­vice or prod­uct to suit their ev­ery­day needs in spe­cial­ist ar­eas of tourism, ser­vices, mu­sic, mar­ket­ing, trans­fers and re­pairs.

“The Hut in­vites peo­ple to ask ques­tions whether they need a to book a sail­ing trip, a band to play at their event or some­one to dig a hole in their back­yard and I then di­rect them to qual­ity lo­cal busi­nesses to ful­fil that need,” she said.

Lo­cal busi­nesses are wel­come to reg­is­ter with The Hut as a ‘Hut-Star’ and have their de­tails recorded on The Hut’s in­ter­nal data­base which is then pro­moted to cus­tomers. Ms Was­son says it is a sim­ple case of when you help pro­mote The Hut, you pro­mote your­self. Ms Was­son has also been the North Queens­land dis­trib­u­tor of Was­son Plas­tics for the past three years and has prod­ucts in­clud­ing the fa­mous Was­son trailer mud guards and has a mod­ern range of coloured plas­tic, stain­less steel chairs on dis­play.

The Hut is con­ve­niently lo­cated at the Cannonvale Mar­kets on Shute Har­bour Road. It is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble for car­a­vans and trucks with park­ing at the front and rear of the store.

WORK­ING TO­GETHER: Whit­sun­day Tran­sit owner Dar­ren Cross­ley and Trop­i­cal De­signs owner Rick Norder, pic­tured here with Jenni Was­son, have their ser­vices on of­fer at The Hut.
