Retirement farewell and thank you to the Community of Bribie Island and Surrounding areas! Established in 1982 as Allure Boutique, Deck Out, Wells Cargo Barn, Grosso Mondo & finally Anna’s!
Anna’s is a 100% Australian Family Owned and operated womenswear clothing retailer, based in Bribie Island for over 38 years Est 1982 by Dianne Wells. Anna’s (Fashion Boutique) was born out of realising a gap in the market for local women, and has been run continuously by 2nd generations of family over these years Dianne and Anna Wells.
The knowledge and experience passed from each generation to the new, provided a unique position to evolve and offer fresh new ranges each season, with a strong backbone of experience translated via manufacturers and imported to deliver quality, consistently season after season.
Di Said “Our ranges offered easy to wear, well fitted, ageless pieces enriched with a playful colour palette.”
“We wanted women who wear our clothes to feel stylish and comfortable as well as we wanted women to feel good knowing that we supplied quality natural fibres like linen, cotton, viscose, rayon and mixes. We have endeavoured to ensure we sourced clothing from wholesalers, manufacturers and communities that look after their workers.”
“Because we’re a family business, and believe in treating people well, we looked after our suppliers and partners, as we would our own family. Many cups of tea also have been shared with customers over the years.”
“Fashion should make everyone feel good, not just the wearer but the observer also. As we are proudly 100% Australian owned, we have supported, where possible, over the years; local Australian manufacturing businesses. It is my hope manufacturing will veer away from overseas production and return to Australian shores in the near future.”
We have shared experiences with so many organisations in our community for mutual benefit having fun and fundraising at the same time.
“Now it is time to take the next step in life, into the twilight years and to take the time to let you, our customer, know that you are our business, and we appreciate each and everyone. It’s time to say farewell, many thanks and wishing you all the best life can offer.”
