leguano's first retail store in the southern hemisphere now open in Newstead
After months of planning, crunching numbers backwards and forwards, hopes and doubts and considerations of what might or might not happen we decided to do it: We are opening leguano’s first retail store in Australia and couldn’t be more excited about it!
Whether a global pandemic is the right time to open a retail shop is a question that we’ve been asked more than once. And you can rest assured that we have been thinking about the answer more than once. And our conclusion is this: we don’t know. What we do know however is that we are fully convinced by our product and that we wholeheartedly stand behind the brand. And as a plus, we have also fallen in love with the location.
A significant share of our customers prefer to try on, learn about our barefoot shoes and work out their correct sizing in person before a purchase. With our store we want to offer our audience this option, partly also because our leguanos tend to sell themselves when people try them on. That is one of the reasons why there are now more than 108 leguano retail stores in Germany, and the count keeps increasing. And since Saturday, 12 September there is now the first of its kind in Australia!
Please note that we had to push back the date for the official opening to Saturday, 3 October. You will find our store in the beautiful Limestore building at 33 Longland Street, Newstead QLD 4006.
Mon - Wed, Fri > 9am - 5pm, Thu > 10am - 6pm, Sat > 10am - 4pm, Sun > closed.
So if you live in Brisbane or are planning a visit in the near future, make sure to drop in and say hi! And don’t worry, there is no Lederhosen dress code in our store…
