Rourke & Henry was established in Forster on the Central Coast of NSW where it flourished as a shop front and online store. In May 2013 Rourke & Henry was sold to Brooke and Rach, two new and very enthusiastic owners who were rookies at retail but keen to learn the ropes of owning our own business!
The business was then relocated to Cowra in Central West NSW so Brooke & Rach could attempt to juggle the roles of being mums to little people, wives to two very patient men and very 'professional' business women all at the same time! We decided to give our new little venture a revamped name - Rourke & Henry Kids Boutique as well as new logo and watched as our then online only business grew at a rapid pace.
Our next decision has brought us to where we are today; we decided to open a 'Pop Up' shop to broaden the awareness of the small business throughout the local community as well as to further build an online audience. After a planned 8 week Pop Up that was an unbelievable success blew out to 6 months of shop door open trade, the decision was made...Rourke & Henry Kids Boutique would become a permanent bricks and mortar store in Cowra!
Once renovating the old 'it used to be a butcher shop' shop front to give it an eclectic and warm feel that represented both R&H Mum's personalities, the shop doors reopened and trade commenced at this shop front until September 2016. At this point the business underwent even more changes and growth with Rach stepping away from the business to spend more time with her lovely little fam. I decided to continue to move forward with R&H and relocate the shop to a larger and more prominent position in town. This new shopfront again needed renovation, so with determination, a supportive 'I can renovate anything' husband and loads of hustle, the new shop space took shape with even more uniqueness and a feel that so many compliment! Once flinging the doors open we welcomed new longer trading hours, new fab labels, new staff and a new approach to running this small biz! I would love you to visit the store at 113 Kendal Street, Cowra NSW 2794 and check out the shop for yourself....I know you will love!
As well as being a budding business woman and wifey, I have the very important role of being a mumma to three little humans who keep me super busy here at R&H HQ!
