Shore City: Country Road
Take a walk down Country Road...
Orange is featuring strongly in the summer collections beginning to catch the eye at Country Road this month. Summer styles are beginning to bring a colourful pop to many stores on the Shore. The beautiful Shore City mall is awash with colour and Country Road up on level two is leading the charge.
The store has a new manager in Jan Corbett. She joined the company in July after having worked for several other fashion retails stores in New Zealand. She also used to have her own sales and marketing business in London.
Jan is a Brit who has made Milford her home. She said: "Country Road is a great company and a good brand that really looks after their customers. We deliver good service, that's why we have people coming back and back."
What can customers expect for the summer season at Country Road? Jan says: "Black and white are still really in. There is a lot of orange around too. It was big news last summer, but its back with slightly different shades this year."
Menswear and womenswear are offered at the Shore City centre store, which has 13 staff to ensure customers are always able to receive the attention they need.
Beach towels are a popular seller, as might be expected on the coastal North Shore. Jan said: "Takapuna is a beach resort at the end of the day. Country Road used to be very much about workwear but we have moved more towards casual urban wear."
Jan recently attended a managers' conference in Melbourne at which she got a sneak peek at collections for 2014. Thought she wouldn't give much away, Jan said: "There are lots of exciting developments on the horizon
