We did it!! Thanks to our customers' support and tremendous growth over the years, we were bursting at the seams at our original tenancy in Gilbert St, so the big move has been made to a brand spanking new (and much bigger) Oishi-m space.
We are now open for business - what a milestone!
Many thanks for all the hard work and support from our trades and craftspeople who turned around the project in record time over the christmas period.
Big thanks to Milligram Studio for our incredible Retail Design, and to Michael Leake Construction Management for his expertise in the timely construction of our new space - especially over the silly season. Then there's the custom joinery of our Card Tree, Bed and Footwear Wall, plus a beautiful kitchen and dining space out the back. Your teams have helped make Oishi-m possibly the best childrenswear store in Australia!

It's been a team effort in collating all our wishlists including feedback from customers, to create a beautiful and functional space.
We're in love with the custom joinery of our bed and shelving to showcase our fave brands including Aussie bedding label, Kip & Co and crochet toys by Geelong brand, Miann & Co. Shadowboxes above are filled with our amazing wares, with different stories told within each vignette.
Our boys rack is filled with Holiday '17 beauties, in oceanic tones of aqua, minty blue, hibiscus shades, greens and navy blues. It's the perfect setting for the full spectrum of rainbow beauties from our friends at Grimms, who make these unbelievable puzzles with non-toxic dyes.
Our central Card Tree is filled with keepsakes and cards for every occasion...
... and the footwear wall is a veritable lolly shop of choices for little feet, from Nike's to Salt Water Sandals, Vans to Native Shoes. Lil' munchkins will love our comfy new Kip & Co floor rug for trying on shoes too.
Our Store opening hours are:
Monday - Saturday 9:30am - 5pm
Sundays 10am - 4pm
Our new store is located at Shop 7, Torquay Village, 41-57 Bristol Road, Torquay, next to Surfcoast Wholefoods, Endota Spa and Jetts Fitness, amongst other retailers including Coles. Or check out our Instagram Stories at @oishi_m to see a tour of the new space. See you there!
