A long-time staple of Figtree Grove, Lowes is a one stop shop for everyone. The brand is owned and operated by one family for over 120 years and is an Australian icon. Not only does Lowes stock a wide range of menswear and workwear, but also offers school uniforms, formalwear and even dog accessories (including the cutest little coats!). There are three ranges of menswear including Big Mens, Classic Mens and younger men’s fashion.
There’s a familiar face that you’ve probably seen at Lowes Figtree for over 12 years – Store Manager Manuela. A Wollongong local and registered Justice of the Peace, Manuela says that top customer service and great staff are what sets the store apart. Many of the customers are regulars, who keep coming back for that good old-fashioned personal service. Manuela is fluent in Italian and loves having a chat to his Italian customers. The Lowes team is comprised of staff from different backgrounds and ages, which is perfect for interacting with a wide variety of customers. We quizzed Manuela on what he loves about living in the Illawarra. His reply? “Our area has everything and there’s something for everyone with the beaches, mountains, work and recreation”.
A favourite at the moment are Lowes Classic and Slim Fit Suits. An affordable (yet stylish) option for any special occasion, formalwear is popular range in the Figtree store. There are dress pants and buttoned tops for children too. As the cooler months approach, Manuela also says that dog coats have been flying off the shelves. The new Autumn/Winter range (for humans!) is in store now – we recommend a visit to stock up on those winter warmers for the cooler days ahead.
