We interviewed Ken Hunt, the owner of Monbulk Jewellers in Melbourne, who is this quarter’s ‘refer a friend’ winner of the $5,000! Read what Ken had to say about Smartpay and the win below!
Congratulations on the win! Tell us a bit about your business, Monbulk Jewellers.
My wife Helen and I took over Monbulk Jewellers on 1 Dec 1994 and we have just commenced our 30th year of trading. We are a thriving family business located in the Dandenong Ranges, about an hour east of Melbourne. Personally, I am a fine artist and I paint in oils and do pencil drawings, all very realistic. I am also a gemstone specialist so we design jewellery and of course, run our business.
At Monbulk Jewellers, we have an excellent diverse range of stock including gold and silver jewellery chains, bracelets, rings, pendants and earrings. We also carry a range of Australian Opal, Diamond and Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald and loose semi-precious gemstones as well as clocks, watches, rocks and natural crystals. We also sell artwork; a range of landscape and portrait paintings in store. Something for almost everyone!
We have an onsite professional jeweller, for high-quality repairs and the handmaking of exquisite rings and jewellery. The Dandenong Ranges is a great place to visit and our shop is well worth a look.
When and why did you decide to make the switch and join Smartpay?
We joined Smartpay several years ago after a customer told us about it.
What made you recommend Smartpay and make the referral to another business?
Since joining, we have been astounded at the savings and the service we have received from the Smartpay team – absolutely excellent. Keep up the good work and we will continue to recommend you!
How does it feel to be the lucky winner? Any ideas on how you might spend the $5,000
The phone call to let me know of our win was a great surprise! We think we will take a holiday with the winnings. Thank you Smartpay.
