No longer is shopping simply a stroll along King William Road, a rush down Rundle Mall, or a meet up in Burnside Village. Enticed by a global network of online shops, the people of South Australia are ready to buy online. We have been reading about this for years and the American market is now so far in advance of the game that our very own have gone offshore to buy their goods, lured by GST free and an ever increasing range of goods.

Our own are now shopping from the comfort of their own living rooms.

Whilst we encourage all to “Buy SA” and support local, until now there hasn’t been the “Buy SA Online” provided in a diverse, exciting and truly engaging way. This is slowly changing however we need to up the anti.

Elizabeth (Libby) Gilbert, owner HomewaresDirect, will be launching her new online store in the coming weeks. Not deterred by the excitement of shopping online internationally, she knows her customers expect great service closer to home. She will continue the strong company tradition of top end brands at a good price online, whilst ensuring her customers have a store or person they can chat to about issues.

Each day we are seeing local businesses in South Australia forced to close their doors after many years in business. These businesses support our economy, employ our people and keep our state grinding.

Homewares Direct want to continue their long standing history as a 100% owned South Australian business and will extend their local value through the provision of an online store to meet local customer demands. This store will compliment the other “bricks and mortar” physical stores.

What this means to South Australians is peace of mind. Where an international brand or store may provide an item a few dollars cheaper, Homewares Direct can provide a face and a location that you can drop in to, discuss an issue or talk about a product. It will be an online shop with a face to face connection.

Libby says "We want to provide our customers the choice of either shopping in store with the help of our professional sales staff or making their purchases online, knowing they are supported by a trusted South Australian business".
