A new range of kids streetwear now available in Rockhampton

A NEW range of kids streetwear is now available in Rockhampton, and you will find it down the road - Rocky Road, that is.

Owners Mervyn, Donna and Evita Norton have been busy setting up their shop in the East Street Mall.

They aim to open their doors for the first time later next week.

"What we are doing is a whole collection of different things thrown in, like a Rocky Road chocolate," Donna said.

The family has a background in retail clothing, having previously run a department store in Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia.

"We were on that Fitzroy River, now this Fitzroy River," Donna said.

"We were pretty much the only shop in town."

They relocated to Rockhampton last year - the same place Mervyn's ancestors arrived at in 1862, on the ship Utopia.

Rocky Road will stock children's clothing from size 000 through to size 14.

The store will also stock a range of women's wear from size 6-26.
