Qual­ity and value for all

The Tribune (NZ) - - TERRACE END - Bob Wat­son

Spring is here and, with sum­mer just around the cor­ner, this is a great time to pop down to Gille­spies Value House and buy your new sum­mer wardrobe.

Gille­spies have been pro­vid­ing qual­ity, af­ford­able cloth­ing for over 55 years and are cur­rently fill­ing their racks ready for sum­mer.

Owner Barry Gille­spie says: ’’We have a great range of sum­mer cloth­ing in­clud­ing blouses, skirts, light­weight knitwear and the ever popular Aer­tex cot­ton and cot­ton blend shirts. These come in a range of sizes, colours and pat­terns to suit both ladies and gents.’’

Along with the new sum­mer cloth­ing, the new sea­son’s range of Schranks and Givoni nightwear has ar­rived. Se­nior sales as­sis­tant Rae Har­ris says these are their most popular brands be­cause of their qual­ity and com­fort.

‘‘The range in­cludes night­ies as well as dress­ing gowns and brunch coats, all in their clas­sic de­signs and colours.’’

While their new sea­son stock con­tin­ues to ar­rive, Gille­spies still has a num­ber of sales racks with be­tween 10 per cent and 50 per cent off the re­tail price. From dresses and skirts, knitwear, men’s and women’s ca­sual wear and trousers, the choice is end­less.

‘‘We also keep a good range of sizes in many of our cloth­ing lines. For women we have sizes 10 to 26 and for men up to 6XL. We also go up to size 146 in men’s trousers and size 140 in jeans, while shirts go up to size 52,’’ says Barry.

The sale also ex­tends to their com­plete range of knit­ting wools and hab­er­dash­ery. So if there are re­pairs to be made, Gille­spies have the nee­dle and thread, and but­tons and zips to tend to the wear and tear.

With­out get­ting too far ahead of our­selves, sum­mer school uni­forms are now in stock for St James, St Peters, PNINS and PNGHS. Rae says it only takes a small de­posit to put these on layby and by pay­ing a small amount reg­u­larly they’ll be paid off well in time for the start of the new school year.

Barry adds that they have no hard and fast rules when it comes to lay-bys, which makes pay­ing the cloth­ing off so much eas­ier. It’s also im­por­tant to or­der your uni­form early if you have a par­tic­u­larly small or large child to en­sure you get the cor­rect size, plus Gille­spies can also ar­range per­son­alised printed or em­broi­dered name tags for your new school uni­forms.

Just brows­ing through Gille­spies, it’s amaz­ing how much cloth­ing they have which is hard to find in any other cloth­ing store, and the bowl­ing fra­ter­nity is also well catered for, with a com­plete range of the tra­di­tional whites; trousers, shirts and the es­sen­tial light­weight wa­ter­proof overtrousers and jack­ets, which are great for com­pe­ti­tion play dur­ing the un­pre­dictable spring weather.

With their em­pha­sis on com­fort, qual­ity and value for money, It’s not hard to see why Gille­spies is a popular choice for fit­ting out the en­tire fam­ily.
