Black Friday sale exceeds expectations

The antiques store’s sale doubled expectations as over 1500 walked through the shop doors

A local antiques store had a successful return to sales last weekend with its Black Friday bonanza “doubling expectations” for store owner Mitchell Gordon.

Woy Woy Antiques & Collectables ran a 30 per cent off store-wide sale from November 29 to November 30 to help shift vintage stock ahead of the Christmas period.

Gordon said over 1,500 people visited the store over the weekend, with plans to expand sales in the new year.

“It went really, really well,” Gordon said.

“We’re going to do a big book fair in January after Christmas is out of the way.”

The sale comes after a busy six months for Gordon and his team of five staff.

The store has held several events to raise money for charity, sold raffle tickets for the Rotary Club of Brisbane Water and collected bread tags for Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs.

“We are excited to be operating Deepwater Plaza’s first sustainable shopping destination, connecting with community and donating a percentage of our profits to local charities affected by the COVID-19 crises,” Gordon said.

Woy Woy Antiques & Collectables is located opposite Newcastle Permanent in Deepwater Plaza.
