New store: sports and toys for all

FOR all those who love their sports and their toys, there is now a store for you.

Sports Power Superstore and Toy World opened in Cannonvale yesterday with the official store opening to be held on Saturday.

The new store is part of the new Reef Plaza complex and brings with it many services to the people of the Whitsundays.

Co-owner Rob Ebzery who also owns the Sports Power store in Mackay said this was the first store of its kind offering both fitness equipment and toys to its customers under the one roof.

“We've always been into the sports side but we knew Cannonvale and Airlie Beach didn't have the toys [side of things],” he said.

“They can see what they usually get in the big city and now get it here.

“They will have a range, choice and value for money they haven't had before.”

Covering 1100m2, Mr Ebzery believes the warehouse style store has a more diverse range of products than many others in the Whitsundays.

On the left are all the goods parents may need for their kids this Christmas from Lego, Barbie dolls, Razor Scooters and pool equipment.

On the right there are treadmills, home gym systems, gym clothing, joggers and more balls than any sports field needs.

Mr Ebzery said he could not wait for the official opening this weekend. “We just can't wait to see how the Airlie Beach/Cannonvale people react to it,” he said.

“We've been here for three weeks now setting up so we just want to get it all finished and opened and meet the people.”
