As part of our Gawler Local Business Hot Spot, we recently got in touch with local business owner Lisa Cahill, of Halo Chic. This quaint little shop that has been operating for two and a half years is located in the Gawler Arcade on Murray Street (opposite Woolworths). The successful business is run by Lisa and a very good friend of 30 years, Nola. Add another team member, Talitha, and they make an awesome trio !! The team manufacture and sell their very own unique soy wax candles and a range of bath and shower bombs and giftware.
Lisa shared with me her fond memories of growing up in Gawler. She says ‘I attended the local schools and loved participating in local sporting clubs with my friends’. She maintains many of those deep connections with friends within the Gawler community and says that, “I still love to call this place ‘home’”. Lisa’s father and grandfather also owned and ran a family business in the township for 35 years (located also within the Gawler Arcade). Having being part of the Gawler Township for so many years Lisa says ‘I’ve seen Gawler grow and change a lot since I was young. It’s such a pretty town and I love all my friends and the connections I have made over the years’.
When asked what her favourite local event is she says she loves going to the local horse racing events as well as the local netball league matches.
Lisa spoke also of her ideals in a new concept for Gawler, she says “Ideally I would love to see more businesses opening up along Murray Street (Main Street) and the street traffic reduced to zero. This area would be amazing if it were converted to an outdoor mall with coffee shops and local shops. I think this is a unique concept and different from the sterile retail environment of a shopping centre we have become so accustomed to. If Landlords, Council and Business Owners alike would work together to make Gawler an awesome place to be – wouldn’t that be great?”
