Beehave goes online!

In the lead up to our Golden Ticket buy local promotion prize draw we have been chatting to some of the 22 local businesses featured in this year’s competition. This week we had a chat to Robyn Hansford of popular Castlemaine store ‘Beehave’ in Mostyn Street.

Robyn Hansford has been at the helm of the popular local ladies fashion, footwear and accessories store for around 12 years now.
“I worked at Beehave for three years prior to that. I think the store would have been operating for almost 20 years now,” Robyn said.

The local businesswoman has soldiered on throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, opening her doors for limited hours (10-4) and putting a number of measures in place to keep her staff and the community safe.

“We have measures in place to limit the amount of customers in store, social distancing practices, hand sanitiser etc and I have been quarantining and steam cleaning items which people have tried on and decided not to purchase to ensure they are safe for the next person.”

Robyn has also developed an online store to meet the needs of her customers who have been self isolating. See the Mail for the full story. Out Now.
