New retailers on the block

We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Effie, the new owner of Busy Bee Kiosk in Kelmscott. Effie works with her three daughters, Farisha, Stephanie and Mastika, and says they are “just a bunch of cheerful gals”.

After working in three different Lotto kiosks since 2007, Effie made the decision to do what she does best and buy a store of her own.

Starting a business during COVID-19 she said was challenging.                                         

“To keep my dream alive, I still opened as per usual during the pandemic,” Effie said.

“Luckily enough, the kiosk is situated at a small shopping centre, so I still managed to have a steady income.”

Talking with customers and being able to spend more time with her daughters is what she enjoyed most about her day.

Thanks for joining us Effie, Farisha, Stephanie and Mastika, we look forward to working with you.
