After 17 and 10 years respectively, Bessie Head and Dirtbox will no longer be a part of the retail landscape in the Brisbane.We have lost our battle in the new Wintergarden after 18 months of struggling to survive and have closed the doors...
There are many factors that have contributed to our closure - online shopping, decreased spending and lack of consumer confidence to name a few. It is however without a doubt the ongoing high rents in the CBD that have delivered the final blow.
Thank you to our family of staff – a passionate and tenacious group of people who believed in our brands and strived to go above and beyond on a daily basis.
Thank you to our loyal clients, we will miss you all terribly and the like minded community we felt proud to be a part of. It’s been most wonderful sharing both your fashion and life journeys over the years.
Thank you to all our suppliers for their support and flexibility during these difficult times.The Australian Tax Office, generally portrayed as sinister, has worked with us providing realistic payment plans in their efforts to keep our business afloat.
We urge you all to support local small businesses before your only option to shop will be with the big chain stores or online, as these hard working people are the backbone of our country - we must be more mindful of this moving forward and make a conscious effort to nurture them.
