The tradition continues

The Castlemaine Mail Golden Ticket promotion is fast nearing its conclusion with the seventh piece of the puzzle to be found on page 11 of today’s paper.
This week we chatted to Carina Bouch of one of Castlemaine’s much loved and long running businesses Maine Shoes and Accessories.
The shoe store began more than 130 years ago at the site at 174 Barker Street.
“It has only been owned by a few families in that time. I came to work here in 2000 when Nola and Laurie Harding owned the business. They sold a few years later to Stacey and Tim Solly and then in 2015 my husband Neil and I took over the business,” Carina said.
The business owner said the store has always prided itself on only stocking quality Men’s, Ladies and Children’s footwear. 
While they have currently closed their doors due to the current situation, Carina and the team have been working behind the scenes to ensure people have their slippers, gum boots and comfortable work boots ready for the chilly months ahead. See the Mail for the full story.
