Palmwoods fruit and veg shop Brady’s Fruit, located about two hours north of Brisbane has been announced as the first Brisbane Produce Market Retailer of the Month 2012 by winning for the month of July.
The monthly accolade recognises excellence in fruit and vegetable retailing. Owners Colin and Sandra Pearce were excited to be both rewarded for their hard work. Mr Pearce had been working in the store for 26 years before previous owner and namesake, Bob Brady, sold to the Pearce family over eight years ago.
Colin, Sandra and their sons all work in the store, bringing different skills to the business which is proving to be a successful formula.
“I am responsible for all the buying at the Brisbane Markets selecting the best produce at the best prices. This is a time consuming job and on top of that I probably clock up more miles than any other buyer with my round trips to Brisbane each week,” Mr Pearce said.
“We are also grateful for our long serving staff members, we couldn’t possibly do it without their commitment to customer service and pride in the work. When we win an award like Retailer of the Month it just shows us that everyone’s hard work is paying off.”
Brady’s Fruit is an iconic greengrocer in the area and Colin and his family are constantly looking at ways of better servicing their customers, whilst keeping the tradition of personal service.
