Centre Well On Trend - Palm Beach Precinct Reflect's Suburbs Lifestyle Attraction
The Palm Beach Shopping complex at 1136 Gold Coast Highway has fast become the new place-to-be to get your eclectic fix of surf, street art, culture and coffee. Over the past months the empty shops have been taken up by new businesses that represent this laid back and unique style.
Leasing Manager Iain Ferguson from LJ Hooker Surfers Paradise said it’s great to see people from the community supporting local businesses and culture as well as the shop owners supporting each other.
“The centre has really good mix of popular shops including the new art and clothing store The Apparel Collective, Department of Coffee, a very unique fabric store, Gourmet Deli, Crusty’s Bakery, Hachi Japanese Restaurant, Living Reef Aquarium, Free Choice Tobacconist and Dominos,” Ferguson said.
“On any given day from 6am onwards the Department Of Coffee is completely packed with locals because it’s renowned for great coffee, food, service and atmosphere at a good price.”
Owner of The Apparel Collective Jason Langendam said after their great success in the Northern Beaches store in Sydney are stoked to be on the Goldie, which they call their second home.”
“From the humble beginnings of the garage sale we bring you The Apparel Collective. A clothing store that sources good product at good prices, working with premium brands with premium products at up to 70% off,” said Langendam.
“To celebrate our official opening the crew are throwing a party for the public on tonight, Friday 30 May at 5pm to 7pm at Shop 7.”
“Everyone’s invited to come along and meet the crew plus a bunch of well-known local artists who will be there to showcase their work on the night.”
“At Apparel Collective we’re all about spreading the love of the surf, skate and art culture.
People can come along and listen to some good beats and have a few cold ones and light refreshments thanks to Pickled Pig Brewery in Tweed.”
“Prints and decks will be able to be ordered on the night there will be a mix of photography and art works on exhibit from artists Daniel Johnston, Nelson Nokela, Scott Barkle, Luke Morrell and Cottage Skateboards.”
Ferguson said the other shops are going to have specials on and a little something extra for the locals this weekend to support the opening of The Apparel Collective.
