Maddelyn is head over heels with her customers at Spendless Shoes in Eastlands. As store manager, she’s the perfect fit and has a smile that never goes out of style.

Maddelyn has worked at Spendless Shoes for three years. She was quick to find her feet: “I started as an assistant manager and in just under a year I was promoted to manager.”

Before she jumped in, Maddelyn did some sole searching. She had worked as a casual retail sales assistant at Myer over Christmas and completed a Certificate II in Retail. “I wanted to work in a busy customer-focused environment and I knew Eastlands was the right place for that,” she explains.

Spendless was a step in the right direction to furthering her skills and career. The store has shoe styles to suit every member of the family and the staff have a reputation for being ‘the world's friendliest shoe people'.

The shoe fits perfectly for Maddelyn, who honed her footwork fundamentals playing state netball. She loves the customer interaction and the physical work behind the scenes that keeps her store organised and presentable.

“I appreciate the compliments I receive from customers about my service. Knowing that I’ve made their experience enjoyable is really important”, says Maddelyn.

Maddelyn credits the customers for making her days fun, busy and enjoyable: “They are friendly and always up for a chat. It’s nice to see them smiling when they leave my store.”

She also loves having a laugh and socialising with the other retailers at Eastland, who are toe-tally hilarious.

“BigW is mainly where I shop – it has everything from food to clothing and it’s very useful for store supplies. I also like Umai Sushi Bar. One of my regular customers insisted on buying me lunch from there one day – her good deed for the day, she said.”
