Swan Hill’s commercial streetscape is witnessing some great activity as new businesses take up residence and existing companies update and rejuvenate.
Congratulations to Darren & Bronwyn Hinton on the amazing job they’ve done to transform 400 Campbell Street into the bright and attractive headquarters of G J Gardiner Swan Hill – beside Pooles Accounting. The G J Gardner team are conveniently close to enjoy a Thai Massage from the girls at Sala Thai Wellness (pictured below left) just across the road at 391 Campbell Street and a coffee from Kelly at Maurish Cafe.
Rivetts Bakery has moved into bigger premises at 205 Campbell Street providing more space for patrons to enjoy their famous pies with a cuppa. The doors at Rivetts/Turners old shop have re-opened as Kaye O’Toole launches Table for 12 (pictured below bottom), which offers diners a hands-on dining experience. Just around the corner in McCrae Street, we’ve seen Pip’s Cutting Room move into number 22, Smooth & Soothe move from 22 to 14 and Boo’s Café open in number 12
Take a walk up McCallum Street past the Bendigo Bank and you’ll see how Steve and Cindy have rejuvenated Melodies to become the smart new Colombo’s Café and Pasta Bar.
The little butcher shop beside Target has vanished and will soon reveal a smart new premises that will be the home of Super Nails and Spa, providing some special pampering for the ladies and the S.N.A.G.s of course.
Progressing from their online store, Lush Moss now have a sparkling new shop front at 46 McCallum St (above), sharing the space with Heil Engineering Consultants who made the move to the bigger premises earlier this year. The Rustic Ivy Florist (below) has just joined The Whole Shebang and Art & Soul Organic Shop and Gallery (Susi and Franz of Art & Soul below) on Chapman St, making the north precinct well worth a visit.
Russell Boxall has taken an exciting new lease of 110 Campbell Street to open Sleep Zone right next door to his established Swintons Homemakers, furniture & electrical store. At the north end of the business district some locals might not recognise the new-look Tripodi & Taverna’s at 11-15 Beveridge St – still providing fresh, quality fruit and vegies- orBakker & Glen at 46-48 Nyah Rd (it seems that green is the flavour of the month). Just around the corner from Bakker & Glen at 39 Stradbroke Ave it’s hard to miss Chris Conlan Electrical’s new signage.
Swan Hill Hire has also had a face-lift as new proprietors, Stuart and Raelene King, set this great business up for an exciting future. High Thyme at shop 2/257 Beveridge St has also undergone a makeover and I’m sure its patrons are excited to see the new-look premises.
Good luck to all of these new and existing businesses.
