St George’s store Lidz to close
St George's speciality hat and clothing shop Lidz is closing down, citing struggling sales.
Owner Giovanna Harris said sales started off “great” but dropped off by the end of this past summer.
“It's really slow in St George's and we have just been affected by the economy,” she said.
Lidz had only been open a year. The Harrises chose the St George's location for the business because the rent was more reasonable than Hamilton.
Lidz is located in Mullet Bay, in the former Reid's building.
The shop specialised in baseball caps, and also sold football jerseys, shoes and other items.
It will close at the end of the month and all inventory is currently on sale.
Ms Harris said deals include five hats for $100 and selected hats for $25.
And she said if another entrepreneur was interested in the store shelving, security and tech systems, they should contact her.
“We are getting rid of everything,” she said.
