Sunshine Coast Airport showcases local products with launch of new concept store

November 5, 2018 Airport No Comments Email Email

Sunshine Coast Airport has launched its new Sunshine Coast 1530 East concept shop, stocking a range of home-grown and hand-made gourmet food products, gifts, homewares, and skincare lines from many of the region’s most renowned businesses.

Sunshine Coast 153º East is named for the longitude line running through the Sunshine Coast and provides an opportunity to showcase a curated and refined selection of products from around the coast.

Sunshine Coast Airport CEO Peter Pallot said he was delighted that the airport could play a role in supporting local business with our concept partner AWPL.

“We are not only delivering a world class regional airport for our community, we are proudly providing a platform for promoting local producers and enhancing their exposure to the Sunshine Coast’s discerning visitor market,” Mr Pallot said.

“This is a fabulous opportunity to showcase our very own Sunshine Coast products”.

Natalie Thorogood, whose local bath and beauty business Soak Society is stocked at the new store, says the high-quality products will add an extra element to the Sunshine Coast holiday experience.

“Visitors to the airport will be able to see our products on arrival and departure from the coast, so there’s a great opportunity for them to take a little part of the coast home with them. People like to buy quality local products when they travel, so we are delighted to be a part of that really positive mix,” Natalie said.

“Tourist numbers to the Sunshine Coast are growing and with the airport’s expansion, the store is really going to provide our businesses with amazing opportunities both domestically and internationally.”

Partner at Mooloolah Valley Honey Brett Murray is equally enthusiastic saying he feels that the quality of the store provides a great profile for the local businesses stocked there.

“What better way to introduce a product to a wider market than with a great store like this, and when the new runway is finished we can really take our products to the world,” Mr Murray said.

“Knowing the calibre of local products carried in the Sunshine Coast 1530 East store, the customers are getting a fantastic variety of locally sourced merchandise to take home with them, it’s a win-win.”
