In a store packed with options, Manager Tracey Partridge and the team at Strandbags can point out the latest fashions, functionality and features of all the bags and accessories on offer. Tracey said her team’s product knowledge and expertise often surprises her customers.
“When people come in for luggage we can also advise them on adaptors, chargers and travel wallets. Not to mention handbags with wired handles that can’t be slashed and luggage locks that customs officers can open and close with a master key.” The Strandbags brand heritage dates back to 1927 and Tracey said customers often recall fond memories of shopping in the original store in Sydney’s Strand Arcade.
“We’ve grown to become one of Australia’s largest and most successful specialty retailers with more than 300 locations around Australia and New Zealand, and in South Africa and the Middle East. “Here in Port Central that means we can provide the best range of handbags, wallets, school and work bags in brands our customers love.”
After working in the clothing side of fashion most of her career, Tracey has enjoyed the switch to accessories and has been with Strandbags for close to 5 years.
