MY SAY: As they say when you are having fun, time flies.
That must be the case at Sportfirst Caloundra as we cannot believe we are turning 20 years old this year.
Sportfirst Caloundra opened its doors in Sunland Shopping Centre in 1996, trading as Image Sportswear, before we all had mobile phones and every house had the internet.
Business has changed a great deal since then but the one thing that has not changed for Sportfirst Caloundra is its fantastic customers who are responsible for its longevity.
After trading for 15 years out of a small space in Sunland Shopping Centre, we made the big move up to Bulcock Street in 2011.
We had no idea what a great street Bulcock was.
We could now stock an even deeper range of quality products and brands like Asics, Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Skechers And Land And Sea.
Being two blocks from the water it also made good sense to carry a large range of water sports equipment.
Soft surfboards, body boards, mask and snorkel sets, and some fun scooters and skate boards to get around town in summer.
Being a small business and an owner operator our customers get one on one service with a smiling face they will see next time they need footwear as well.
Customers like the fact that we are not a faceless business.
We are very old school and are able to solve any problems very quickly to keep our customers happy.
We are very excited in 2016 as Bulcock Street has had one massive make over.
Our 20 years in business birthday sale weekend is happening on Saturday, December 10, and we would love to see everyone come in and enjoy 20% off all of our stock for the weekend.
We are also having a VIP night from 5-9pm Thursday, December 8.
Just like us on Facebook and you will be in.
Thanks again for a fantastic 20 years.
- Sean McMichael is owner and operator of Sportfirst Caloundra.
