“I even worked at Pure Beauty & Hair Co many years ago as a casual and loved being in the centre,” she said.

For Brad and Kim working locally means being close to home and working in a family-friendly environment.

“The Illawarra is truly a family-friendly environment where everyone knows each other which is great for us,”

“The retailers that we have met so far have been very welcoming and with two new stores open last week (Hearing Australia and George and Matilda Eyecare for Figtree Optometrist) it’s been great to see the centre so alive,” Brad said.

In terms of skin care, Kim has worked with many different products over the years and has partnered with the existing skin care range by the Australian-made and owned company Ultraceuticals.

“I’m excited to partner with Ultracueticals to provide quality skin care products that our clientele knows and loves,”

“I’ve heard great things about their range of skincare,” she said.

Pure Beauty & Hair Co will also offer microdermabrasion, waxing, infrared skin treatments and much more. Visit their website to see the full list of services and to make a booking, or pop in-centre and say hi to Kim and the team.

They are also on the lookout for a Senior Hair Stylist to rent a space in the salon.

Williams Shoes

Posted: October 5, 2021 | Author: maintenance@attractor.com.au

A local favourite for 26 years, Williams Shoes is still going strong. With brands like Colorado, Diana Ferrari, I Love Billy and Skechers, customers have endless footwear options to choose from whether it be for a special occasion, back to school or everything in between. In exciting news, the store is undergoing renovations with a fresh new look being revealed in April 2021. We asked the store managers to give us some hints as to what the brand-new Williams will look like. “It’ll have an upmarket look with all the latest styles to feature in the store” said Heather.

The team and relief store managers Slav Velkovski and Heather O’Neil all live locally and love interacting with the many familiar faces of Figtree to help them find their perfect fit. For Slav and Heather, the best part of living in the Illawarra is the beautiful beaches, parks and cafes. The relaxed vibe of the city is also a big plus for the duo. Selected staff also assist in the local community by volunteering with the elderly.

The store is renowned for its personalised service and experienced staff. Complimentary home delivery is offered for all purchases, as well as a free measure and fit for customers. If you’re someone who struggles to find shoes in your size, Williams is the perfect option with an extensive range of sizes to fit both extra small and large feet. And if you didn’t need any more encouragement, the store has a promotion running all year round. Buy one item and receive your second pair of footwear half price – there’s no such thing as too many shoes!
