Countdown on to Harris Scarfe opening

HARRIS Scarfe will open a store at Stockland shopping centre in Hervey Bay on August 1.

The doors will open at 8.45am and shoppers can expect a range of activities including a cooking demonstration by Dan and Steph, a special broadcast from Mix FM in front of the store, and face painting for children.

Store manager Kristen Maslen said shoppers could also expect special opening day offers.

"We are actually putting out a special Hervey Bay catalogue which will feature exclusive offers for the opening of the store," Ms Maslen said.

She said Harris Scarfe was opening a store in Hervey Bay because there were no other similar retailers.

"It's actually great for the community that they will be able to get these brands at great prices locally," Ms Maslen said.

"They don't have to travel to Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg anymore," she said.

"Down the track , I would like to get involved with local organisations because we're all about the community."
