Bernardi’s Marketplace has launched a brand new staff uniform across their stores in Forbes, Bathurst, Blayney & West Wyalong. Louise Bernardi, Image Consultant, was responsible for the design and facilitated the uniform induction across all stores.
The new uniforms are sourced locally through Gunn’s Menswear who have been contracted to supply more than 2,000 uni-form items for about 450 members of Bernardi’s staff. In addition, Bernardi’s will also source new uniforms from Gunn’s for their newest venture – “Ten Tops” discount stores, located in Dubbo, Fyshwick and Wagga, and opening soon in Nowra.
Joseph Bernardi, CEO of Bernardi’s, said “it’s important for business houses across the Central West to first look in their own backyard to source materials, hospitality, produce, and services, before going elsewhere.”
“Partnerships such as our contract with Gunn’s Menswear are what keep our coun-try towns alive, and I urge other businesses in Forbes to seek similar mutual support opportunities.”
Gunn’s Menswear is an iconic family-owned business in Forbes, established in 1952, delivering a friendly, professional service at competitive prices to the locals for nearly 70 years.
As part of the new uniform launch, Bernardi’s Marketplace has also engaged local hairdressers to participate in their ‘look good, feel good’ staff awareness approach with the spotlight on the importance of good grooming.
“The aim is to encourage all staff members to feel good about themselves in their new uniform, and to support our talented hairdressers across Forbes,” Joseph said.
This initiative gives every member of our staff, both casual and full-time, a $10 voucher to offset the cost of their next haircut. Participating salons are: V Air, Hair with Style, and Bron’s Hair Design, are offering their own discounts to clients presenting Bernardi’s vouchers. The offer extends until the end of August.
