Defn: necessary, need
Perlu, Claremont's newest concept store, pushes the boundaries of the usual retail experience.
I remember years ago when online shopping began (she says, sounding like a grandma), people started to wonder what would happen to brick and mortar stores. Well, we're starting to find out. In this current climate of you-can-buy-everything-on-the-net, boutiques are beginning to provide more than just things to buy.
Perlu, for one, sells everything from locally designed jewellery to quirky swimwear and WA-made clothing, but also boasts in house alterations, custom cabinetry by Spencer Parks & complimentary hot beverages while you shop. Oh and did I mention they have fresh blooms by Ruby Tree Creative available on Fridays and Saturdays? That's right. It'd be hard to not have a good time shopping at Perlu whether you buy something or not.
Warning: you probably will buy something.
