Of­fer­ing qual­ity, value

The Tribune (NZ) - - TERRACE END -

Gille­spies Value House has been a land­mark business in Ter­race End for over 55 years and this longevity is down to a few sim­ple prin­ci­ples: ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice, pro­vid­ing qual­ity cloth­ing at af­ford­able prices and al­ways hav­ing a wide selec­tion of ca­sual cloth­ing and dress wear as well as hab­er­dash­ery and knit­ting wool.

Owner Barry Gille­spie says: ’’Our cus­tomers al­ways like the clas­sic styles of cloth­ing made from good qual­ity fab­rics. Cus­tomers also know we keep a wide range of sizes to suit most peo­ple and even dur­ing win­ter we’ll have a range of sum­mer cloth­ing for peo­ple who may be trav­el­ling overseas.’’

With a few more weeks of win­ter ahead, this is a great time to take ad­van­tage of Gille­spies mid-win­ter sale.

‘‘We have taken an­other 10 per­cent to 20 per­cent off the sale prices so many items are now up to 50 per­cent off. We have a full range of win­ter cloth­ing for ladies and men from ther­mal un­der­wear to warm fleecy jack­ets, ca­sual and dress shirts and trousers as well as ca­sual sports­wear and track pants.

‘‘The sale in­cludes our en­tire stock of win­ter cloth­ing along with all the other sea­sonal cloth­ing we have in the shop,’’ says Barry.

Gille­spies also has ev­ery­thing to keep you cosy and warm at night with their win­ter-weight nightwear in­clud­ing py­ja­mas and night shirts, night­ies, bed jack­ets and dress­ing gowns.

And if you plan on be­ing out­doors over win­ter ei­ther for work, recre­ation or as a spec­ta­tor at sports events, you’ll be able to layer your­self up with com­fort­able cloth­ing that will keep you toasty and warm in the bit­ter­est of weather.

And, to top it all off, you can choose from their range of hats, scarves and gloves.

Other pop­u­lar sale items are their merino wool and woollen blend cloth­ing which in­cludes ther­mals, jer­seys and cardi­gans.

‘‘You can’t beat wool for warmth and the mod­ern merino woollen fab­rics are very pop­u­lar be­cause they not only keep you warm but they are also ex­tremely light­weight and com­fort­able, which means they don’t feel so bulky un­der­neath your coat or jacket,’’ says Barry.

For school chil­dren, Gille­spies car­ries the full range of uni­forms, in­clud­ing sports­wear for, PNGHS, In­ter­me­di­ate Nor­mal, St Pe­ters and St James.

Barry says they make sure they al­ways have stock in store to cater for chil­dren com­ing to the schools at any time dur­ing the year.

Many par­ents make use of Gille­spies lay-by to help pay for their chil­dren’s uni­forms and with the spring term ap­proach­ing peo­ple may need to look at get­ting larger sizes for their chil­dren’s sum­mer uni­forms.

Over the past 55 years Barry has seen a num­ber of changes in the com­mer­cial area of Ter­race End.

‘‘This area has come a long way since we first started Gille­spies Value House and its re­ally good to see the new build­ings go­ing up and the num­ber of dif­fer­ent business that are now op­er­at­ing in the area.

‘‘This is a pop­u­lar area for shop­ping with the free park­ing giv­ing cus­tomers plenty of time to try on clothes and not feel rushed,’’ says Barry.

So if you’re feel­ing a lit­tle chilly, come down to Gille­spies Value House, on Main Street in Ter­race End, to take ad­van­tage of their in­cred­i­ble prices and, be­cause of the qual­ity of their cloth­ing, not only will they keep you warm this win­ter they’ll keep you cosy for a good few years to come.
