Meet Jason, Natures Wisdom
1. Tell us about your store?
Founded in 1993, Natures Wisdom is a locally owned & operated Alternative Gift Store that specialises in New Age Products, Body Piercing & Psychic Readings.
2. What is your current role and main responsibilities?
I have worked at Natures Wisdom since Christmas 2006 after I graduated high school. In 2014, I purchased the business & still work here to this day.
As a business owner you work whatever role is needed at the time. Primarily I take care of all the back-end running of the business & offer Body Piercing services.
3. What do you love about our local community?
Natures Wisdom is one of the longest running small businesses in Stockland Townsville and we're pleased to have had the opportunity to serve the local community for nearly 30 years.
After the floods of 2019, locals supported one another to rebuild. This is happening again right now. There is a big movement to support local.
4. Why do you think shopping centres are important?
Shopping centres bring people together - they offer a unique experience/interaction that you cannot get from online shopping.
5. What do you love most about your job?
The kooky customers. The rad vibes being inside Natures Wisdom. Our awesome staff. Being able to connect with our community & making lifelong friends.
6. Do you have a funny story you would like to share?
Quite often we hear parents/grandparents tell their children how they used to be a regular at Natures Wisdom in the 90's.
