Aussie icon now open
THE doors have swung open to Warwick’s own R.M. Williams retail store with interested customer pouring into to check it out from Saturday.
It was the 14th outlet opened in Queensland for the national chain and R.M. Williams general manager of retail Mitchell Foster said Warwick was a prime location for the retailer.
Mr Foster said he was excited about the new Warwick store and considered it to be a vital part of R.M. Williams’ retail operations in the state.
“Warwick is strategically placed at the junction of major highways from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane – with a rich history of farming and tradition, it is an ideal location for us to open a new store.,” he said.
Located at Shop 22, Rose City Shoppingworld, 81 Palmerin St, the R.M.Williams store has a comprehensive range of footwear, clothing and accessories including jeans, collared shirts, bags, swags and the iconic R.M boots, for men, women and children.
The R.M.Williams Warwick store was the latest addition to the company’s retail network which spans capital cities and regional centres in Australia, as well as London and New York City.
“In addition to this, R.M.Williams and Warwick hold close synergies with our passion for bush events – the Warwick Rodeo is nationally renowned and we look forward to the opportunity to fit out locals and visitors alike in our classic Australian style,” Mr Mitchell said.
“The design and fit-out of the Warwick store reflects the company’s latest store concept which aims to create a homestead atmosphere within a retail space, ensuring customers feel right at home during their shopping experience.”
The opening was just in time for locals to make the most of R.M.Williams’ special Father’s Day ‘Boot and Dryskin’ promotion as an introductory offer whereby customers receive a complimentary dryskin jacket with selected boot purchases.
The R.M.Williams Company was founded in 1932 by Reginald Murray (R.M) Williams.
Since then, the company has built a world-wide reputation as a quality maker of handcrafted boots as well as clothing and accessories for men, women and more recently, children.
