Queenstown embroidery and screen printing business Impact
has expanded its operations, opening a dedicated uniform
display and fitting room.
The firm, winner of the Westpac Chamber of Commerce Small
Business Award last year, has operated in the resort for the
past 23 years, with the expansion a response to growing
demand from clients.
Owner Brigit van der Kaag said the uniform room was a
''one-stop-shop'' for anyone looking for hard-wearing work
wear, including trade, business, activity operators,
restaurants and schools.
''We've found in the past that people weren't always sure
what they wanted and browsing through a brochure was quite a
one-dimensional way of shopping.
''We now have all our uniform stock on display in most sizes
and that enables us to offer a more professional service and
give our clients immediate advice on size, styles and
colour,'' Mrs van der Kaag said.
The 100m2 room at Bowen St had private changing facilities
and staff offered a thorough consultation on the requirements
''Our goal is to look after people and ensure our clients
always leave with exactly what they want each time they visit
''We know Queenstown is a diverse marketplace and our long
relationship with businesses here means we understand their
''We work hard to keep ahead of the game by offering the
latest options and trends, the same as any supplier from
