Ivy Phillips town’s new­est re­tail space

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - FIRE ACTION WEEK -

By WENDY STEPHENS

A NEW shop was opened in Ford Street in Beech­worth last week.

Woor­agee res­i­dent Emma Nankervis said she had al­ways dreamt of hav­ing her own busi­ness with her idea fo­cus­ing on em­brac­ing the lo­cal iden­tity and bring­ing new ex­cit­ing brands to Beech­worth.

The wel­com­ing re­tail space with beau­ti­ful prod­ucts in­clud­ing clothes and wares is called Ivy Phillips.

“When the op­por­tu­nity arose at 71 Ford Street I felt it was meant to be,” Ms Nankervis said.

“Hav­ing worked in the space when it was Hotch Potch over 18 years ago, and more re­cently as Clas­sic Ap­parel, this shop comes with won­der­ful mem­o­ries and ex­pe­ri­ences that will form the pil­lars for my new busi­ness.

“Ivy is the name I had in my pocket if I had an­other child and as that will not be hap­pen­ing I was ex­cited to use it in my busi­ness name.

“Phillips is from the lane be­hind the shop and I have since learned one to which we are also re­lated.”
