I was only speaking to a customer on Tuesday about the mammoth start to 2012 we have had! From our interiors project to the store to a bustling and sunshiney Easter holidays to our homelife everything has been at full throttle since 1 January 2012! We were reflecting on how quickly (only 3 weeks!) the trade fair season (design, furniture and gift) will come around which slides straight into the September school holidays and then BOOM! The Christmas season will begin! I had to sit down merely at the thought! So with only 2 days to go until we hit the half way mark and the final of the 2011/2012 financial year I thought I'd reflect on the relaunch of WR. The response we've had to our Birtwill St Emporium reno has been brilliant - the kind words and excitement from our locals, customers and suppliers has had us grinning from ear to ear. There's been a huge amount of hype around the relaunch and having such a new fresh and colourful environment to work and create in has proved to be such a reinvigorating inspiration for all of us Watermelon Headquarters! If you haven't been in for a sticky beak as yet get on down to Coolum for a look but in the meantime here's a look back at the revamp that was xxx
