Small Business Month – Gladstone Bridal Boutique

Small Business Month – Gladstone Bridal Boutique

May is Small Business Month in Queensland.

Small businesses make a vital contribution to our local economy, and to celebrate we have profiled four local small business owners.

Meet Sally Chynoweth from Gladstone Bridal Boutique.


For Gladstone Bridal Boutique owner Sally Chynoweth there is nothing like the personalised experience you receive when you shop local.

“We want to support you, we want to help you bring your dreams to reality, and we want you to remember us for all those reasons,” Sally said.

“We care about our community, and that’s worth investing in.”

Sally who purchased Gladstone Bridal in November last year said she dreamed of owning her own boutique.

“For the last couple of years I have been working overseas launching an Australian fashion brand, so to be back home and have this amazing opportunity is a dream,” she said.

“And I am blessed to be able to share it with my family.”

Gladstone Bridal has been part of the Gladstone community for more than 40 years, and Sally said the boutique had been fortunate during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve been very lucky here in Central Queensland,” she said.

“We have been able to keep pushing forward with weddings, and we’ve been prepared, which has allowed us to adapt swiftly to any changes.

“So, we have been lucky enough to keep operating through all the craziness over the past year.

“I’m grateful we’ve been able to continue to bring our brides’ visions to reality and support them during what can be a stressful time, that’s what it’s about for us.”

Gladstone Bridal Boutique sells stunning bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses, and also offers alteration services.

Sally said they have some exciting collaborations coming up in the future, and not-to-be-missed competitions on their social media channels, so “watch this space”.
