ByJames Brown

A new exhibition for the Abikhair Emporium is being held at the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum, giving residents of Burpengary real estate the chance to step back to the 1950s and see original advertising and products from the iconic New South Wales franchise. 

Moreton Bay Regional council's Lifestyle and Amenity spokesperson Julie Greer said the exhibition would give visitors the chance to step back and see the different fashion trends of last century.

The Abikhair Emporium was a staple of the state's shopping scene for almost 70 years, giving it an established level in Australia's retail history. The establishment was known for unique, high quality items and top notch customer service. 

"This exhibition is a journey of discovery – a glimpse back to a very different shopping experience from corsets to tweed skirts and woollen jackets complete with hanging wall advertising," said Mrs Greer in a 17 March statement. 

The exhibition will be in Moreton Bay until 26 April, with the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum open Wednesday to Sunday . This could make it a wonderful destination for the weekend, so be sure to pop along and check it out in the coming weeks.
