HELLO PALM COVE!
Leading Australian shoe retailer Footmaster Shoes are opening their doors in Palm Cove this December just in time for Christmas.
Founder and CEO Richard Grainger said he was very optimistic about the Cairns economy and was excited to launch his latest store and support local employment.
"It's been a challenging year for many retailers, but we are confident in the Cairns market and with the knowledge that our products meet local consumer demand."
"We've been watching the Cairns retail industry for many years. As a child our family spent many holidays in Cairns and it’s truly a wonderful destination that all Australians should visit. Combined with listening to feedback from our online customers asking if we have a shopfront in far north Queensland, we've taken the leap," he said.
Mr Grainger, a qualified Podiatrist for 21 years, outlined that Footmaster’s online purchases market had grown over 39 percent this year. Still, when it comes to shoes that fit and look good, their customers liked to see the shoes and take a walk. "It's good old fashion customer service by local expert staff", he said.
Specialising in high-quality women and men's footwear, Footmaster staff are trained in orthotics and understand that each person has a unique set of needs.
Whether you need super comfortable shoes for when you are on your feet all day or at the fun summer bar-b-ques, you will find the perfect pair in Footmaster's extensive range.
Their variety of brands offers a unique centralization for consumers wanting a one-stop-shop for footwear suited across all lifestyles. You'll find well-known brands from all around the world such as Birkenstock, Arches, Rieker, Ivy Z, Naot, Ara and Paso 29.
The grand opening celebration for the Footmaster store will take place in December. Mr Grainger said he was excited to feature the new upcoming Summer collection in their newly refurbished store.
Established in 1999, Footmaster has become one of Australia's premier comfort shoe and podiatry destinations. With stores located across QLD and northern NSW, the brand is expanding, taking their expertise in 'must-have-trends' and supportive footwear with them!
