Manager of Quains Liquor in Wellington, and Movember participant for men’s health Liquor is a fast pace industry
where consumer tastes are constantly changing. It is an engaging space where you’re constantly learning about new products and categories. Our knowledgeable staff at Quains look after all things liquor. “Over the bridge, but worth the drive!” is our catchphrase
Quains Liquor has undergone some big changes in 2018. At
the start of the year we underwent major renovations knocking down walls left, right and centre. We constructed a new cool room which is almost four times larger than our previous one. With new flooring, ceiling, lights and paint the store is looking very fresh. We are really proud of the result.
Keeping a range of products that are on trend and relevant to our customer base can be
challenging at times. We’ve seen a significant push towards consumers trading up, choosing to perhaps drink less frequently but choosing to drink more premium products.
We’ve noticed a trend towards consumers favouring regional wines in our area from Mudgee and
Craft beer is constantly growing and evolving. It seems like anything
that is pink is going really well too – Rose and Pink Gin are blowing up!
Yes, I will be growing a moustache for Movember!
Movember creates really positive awareness around men’s health. THE message from Australia’s Movember Foundation is punchy but effective: “Stop men dying too young”.
“From humble beginnings back in 2003 the Movember movement has grown to be a truly global one, inspiring support from over 5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas,” the organisation said.
“The Movember Foundation wouldn’t be where it is without the enthusiasm of all of those men and women around the globe. We’re committed to keeping things fresh, keeping the community informed, and always being transparent and accountable in our practices.
The Foundation describes itself as a leading charity changing the face of men’s health. “We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
“We continuously challenge the status quo, and invest quickly in what works. In 15 years we’ve funded more than 1200 men’s health projects around the world.
“By 2030 we’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25 per cent.” Now that’s a goal worth supporting!
Movember encourages men everywhere to grow a mo for the 30 days of November – champion the Mo and raise funds for men’s health.
