Homegrown Hero: Local Emporio

Spotlight On: Local Emporio

Location: Harvey

With a focus on quality local and Australian made products and end-to-end service, Local Emporio epitomises boutique retail at its best.

Owner Annie Ritikis took a calculated risk. She opened her boutique store during the COVID-19 pandemic after noticing a demand for local and Australian-made clothing, accessories and giftware, and a gap in the Harvey market.

Following a stint in Sydney’s bridal fashion industry, this Western Australian of Lithuanian and Croatian decent has created an ‘Insta-worthy’ retail store with an extensive range of products from leading and unique artists and designers, plus exclusive one-of-a-kind local giftware in a town she loves.

Providing an end-to-end clothing service, the store also features a haberdashery and an in-house seamstress.
