Today, and every day, particularly in recent times, we are inspired, motivated and moved by the people that call our community home. Survival spurs them on, innovation moves them forward, and generosity means no-one gets left behind. Together, they keep on, even in the toughest of times.  ‘People are…’ pays homage to everything that people have been, are and have the potential to be.

Click & Collect

People are Considerate

Major stores within our Lismore Square shopping centre have offered customers a contact-less, drive-thru Click & Collect service in which customers can grab their essential groceries without stepping out of the car!


Coffee to go

People are Versatile

Our Castletown centre has a new coffee drive-thru service thanks to the team at Good Morning Coffee Trader.  This forward-thinking solution allows customers to grab their morning coffee and croissant without stepping out of the car.


Adapting to a new normal

People are Resilient

When the shutdown was first introduced, many hospitality businesses found themselves unable to continue on.  The team at Bear & Luca Cafe never faltered though, continuing to promote their takeaway options and adapting to a new normal with a smile!


A generous donation

People are Giving

Small town communities stick together.  Woolworths Roma spread the love, donating a gift voucher to a local childcare centre amid a tough time for families.


Free toilet paper!

People are Fun

The Taking Shape team were asked by their head office management to remain positive & optimistic through COVID-19. The Castletown crew took on the challenge, handing out toilet paper to elderly shoppers to show their support and share a laugh.


Donuts at home

People are Creative

The Castletown Donut King crew have provided families with a reprieve from stuck-at-home life with their creative donut isolation packs. After all, there’s nothing donuts can’t fix! We’re proud to see our retailers caring for our community, even through the worst of times.


Home delivery

People are Persistent

When their customers couldn’t come to them, Big Al’s went to their customers, delivering much-needed fresh produce to those members of the community who are unable to come into the centre.


Easter drive-thru

People are Inventive

The Castletown Bakers Delight team got creative this Easter, finding a way to safely provide their customers with their much-loved hot cross buns amid the pandemic. 


Thinking outside the box

People are Original

The essentials for getting through COVID-19: toilet paper and coffee! The Kingaroy Donut King shop said they couldn’t help with the toilet paper issue, but was able to keep their fellow retailers and their customers well-caffeinated thanks to their new mobile coffee cart. 


Amazing customers

People are Kind

Our local communities continue to show support during these hard times, with one customer even gifting the Kingaroy Muffin Break team a lovely bouquet of flowers, just to put a smile on their faces for the day.


A collaboration between retailers

People are Collaborative

We love seeing our retailers come together during both the good times and the bad.  Two of our Kingaroy Shoppingworld retailers worked cohesively to bring some joy to kids stuck at home during school holidays. Cara, from CRB Creative, helped promote Donut King’s school holidays competition with some design expertise. 


Spreading the love

People are Thoughtful

Kingaroy Shoppingworld shared some Easter love to retailers during a very challenging time for retailers and the community alike. Centre Management delivered lunch packs to the retailers throughout the centre who continue to provide for and support their community.  We think it’s safe to say it put a smile on their faces!


Community Care

People are Generous

SG’s Hair Designs have been able to provide for our most at-risk community members who were able to safely get a haircut, thanks to dedicated open times for the elderly and disabled.  Taking care of our community is always a priority, and we love seeing our retailers take on this same responsibility. 


Providing the essentials

People are Innovative

Ingenuity – we love to see it! The Kingaroy Carvery have been able to provide for their community through tough times using innovative, out-of-the-box thinking. Providing for our community members is a top concern for our retailers, and it’s fantastic to see them rising to the occasion.


Keeping on keeping on

People are Resilient

The Little Butcher team have worked around the clock during the last 3 months to continue to provide their community with quality meat products.  They stopped briefly to celebrate their hard work and thank the Kingaroy community for their ongoing support.
