Mensland & MES Streetwear Whyalla has been given the honour of Whyalla Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business of the Month for June 2016.
Owner Justin Turci said the award was ‘great recognition’ of the store’s high level of customer service.
“It’s satisfying that someone recognises the hard work that we put in, our main focus is the customer,” he said.
“Obviously we put effort into ensuring the quality of goods that we have in store as well.”
Mr Turci said ensuring the customer is happy is the ‘number one’ focus for staff.
“Everybody has different tastes, not everyone’s the same, it’s all about finding out what the customer wants and finding something which suits them,” he said.
“Obviously things have quietened down a bit due to the issues with Onesteel, but we’re just trying to push through it as much as we can.”
“We would like more business, it’s something we’re striving for and awards like this go towards that.”
Despite Mensland & MES Streetwear being open in Whyalla for three years, Mr Turci said first-time customers are still common.
“Any bit of awareness is good for us, we welcome any new customers and hopefully all our old ones still come in as well,” he said.
“Thanks to the public for nominating us and the Chamber of Commerce for presenting us with the award.”
