I met recently with Lauren Sinsich (Loz) owner of Gromz ✅ Kids Surf, Street and Skate Shop and asked some questions about her fabulous business established for over 11 1/2 years in Thirroul.
Your background? From school leaver age I have always been in the Real Estate industry, property office management and accounting etc.… After 17 years the opportunity came up to completely change my direction with the purchase of GROMZ, and I took it! As much as I loved the real estate industry I haven’t looked back!
What inspired you to take over the business? Definitely my daughter Zoe, she is my biggest inspiration every day! I have always wanted to own my own business and remember saying to my husband when Zoe came along in 2014 that if GROMZ ever comes up for sale we would buy it and a few years later here we are, taking over in November 2017. “Owning a small business comes with a lot of responsibility and hard work, but at the same time it is very rewarding, and I love every aspect of running the shop!”
Best Describe Your Business? GROMZ is your dedicated all kids surf, street and skate shop! Owned and operated by myself Lauren and staff member Maddie with the support of my husband Dan and our beautiful girl Zoe, we are a local Thirroul family and are very excited to be running a small business in our local community. With this in mind you can have the confidence to purchase from a small shopfront business, our customer satisfaction is our number one priority!
