Henriettas returns

Run off his feet: opening day was busy in the kitchen for Henrietta’s owner Alan Steenholdt.

THE STREETS of Leongatha are buzzing with the news – Henriettas is back open for business.

Owner Meg Steenholdt said it has been a long 12 months since the original building burnt down in May last year, devastating the Steenholdt family, staff members and the community.

In the meantime, a temporary store was set up in Bair Street, but was limited in size when it came to running both a cafe and gift store.

“It’s great to be back in operation again,” Meg said.

And she is not the only one happy about Henriettas reopening.

Despite an opening time of 8am this morning, Meg said the doors were opened at 7.45am.

“But we had people coming in at 7.30!” she said.

With a steady flow of customers throughout the entire day, Meg said the feedback was all very positive.

“Everyone thinks it’s lovely and very light and beautiful,” she said.

“People have been telling me it’s ‘very Henriettas’”.

The general vibe of the store has slightly changed from the former building, with a rustic yet modern feel.

But there is no argument; the new Henriettas is very impressive.

Meg said she chose the majority of the stock, while husband Alan worked tirelessly to build all the counters.

Henriettas online store will be back up and running within the month and a Facebook page updating fans with all the Henriettas news, including competitions and special offers.

“We’ll also start running events, such as product nights and information evenings,” Meg said.
