Brodie Countryfare

I admire this retailer because when the owner approached the question of where to open her new shop, she decided to open in a location that had no major city nearby, was miles from any large conurbation, was a considerable distance from a major airport and had a limited number of local customers in the vicinity.

Kathleen Duncan has built a stupendous business carrying a wide variety of mainstream and fashionable brands. Bubbles [the contemporary womenswear department] at Brodie Countryfare is a destination to which consumers beat a path.

By offering a wide variety of products, including gifts, menswear and kidswear, as well as having an upmarket coffee shop with excellent homemade food and specialising in local products, the reputation of this retailer has spread far and wide. Kathleen is successful in selling the products she buys which, in such a location, is a feat in itself.
