The idea of sitting in traffic travelling to Auckland to visit the generic mall stores with young kids in tow, had very little appeal to Tiny Turtles Owner, Heather Lieshout. As a result, she thought the opportunity to open a store in Pukekohe, one she would happily shop in, and made life easier, appealed.
Tiny Turtles’ range is quite diverse in styles and prices, it goes from Premature through to 12 years, with a great range of footwear too, which is expanding rapidly.
“We try to genuinely help customers who are looking for special outfits or everyday wear” says Heather. “We enjoying helping with the children while they play with the toys in-store, and happily phone our customers when their orders arrive, and source items that they need.”
“I wanted to offer an experience that surpassed the big stores”
The store also has a change table and a toilet that they are happy for people to use. Heather finds that being a small store with a lot of product is much easier and says she has the most amazing customers.
“The excitement in the new Mums and Grandparents is something special and such a nice vibe to be around.”
Tiny Turtles try to stock great quality, and can happily recommend sizes and fit because they really do love their range and know the brands, styles, fit and sizing from fitting them on their own children.
Tiny Turtles was fortunate to have been deemed essential in the first lockdown, and have been able to offer their range online. Heather tell us that “being able to safely ship products throughout level 4 has made such a difference to our store.”
