Homeware and Appliances - Aspley, QLD
The concept of Matthew Thomas is made truly unique by its product and service diversity.
In 2006 Matthew Cox decided to pursue his passion for retail and open his first store, Here Homewares, an eclectic mix of furniture, art, homewares and fashion. This business successfully traded in various regions of South East QLD until 2011, when Matthew decided to alter its concept and introduce a hospitality component to the business. At this time Matthew changed the business trading name to Matthew Thomas. Matthew is derived from the owner's Christian name, and Thomas is the Christian name of his late father, brother, and son.
Matthew developed his passion for retail from his childhood experiences shopping at the markets and local stores with his father. Matthew has been fortunate enough to live, work and travel in various parts of the world and has enjoyed observing and monitoring the methods that local stall holders and retailers employ to sell their wares. Prior to owning stores, Matthew gained invaluable field retail work experience, and held merchandising and territory management positions at Coca Cola Amatil and Cadbury Schweppes. Matthew also holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree.
