Gold Coast hinterland community showing a passion for fashion

THE rapidly growing hinterland community of Mudgeeraba is fast emerging as a budget fashion hot spot.

After just three months trading, the fledgling Red Cross Shop in Railway Street is now hoping to double its in-store volunteer staff in time for a gala launch on Wednesday March 19.

Queensland Retail Area Manager, Michelle Webster says the Mudgeeraba shop quietly opened its doors in January, but has since become Mudgeeraba’s worst kept secret.


“Thanks to the support of the local community and our enthusiastic team of volunteers, Mudgeeraba has been a great success and more than exceeded our expectations,” Michelle said.

“We wouldn’t be where we are today without these wonderful volunteers and now we now need a bigger team to help share the workload.

“If you have a passion for fashion and want to support your local community this could be the job for you.

“Red Cross Shop retail volunteers are given the opportunity to learn new skills in a fun and social environment.

“All volunteers are trained in stock preparation, merchandising, window display, customer service and cash handling.

“The proceeds from Red Cross shops are used to fund local services such as daily phone calls to the elderly, aged care and mental health programs, family support, healthy eating advice and the Red Cross Good Start Breakfast Clubs.”
