From one small store in Brisbane’s Ann Street in 1977, Heath Goddard has grown Pillow Talk into a national retail chain. The retail industry is being rocked by the impact of online shopping and a turbulent economy, while Pillow Talk is pursuing an expansionary strategy.
In a homogenised industry, Pillow Talk diversified and innovated homeware design and now hosts in-house designers collaborating with Australian suppliers and international partners. It is their strong design philosophy and focus on visual merchandising that has ensured success across the decades and continual growth into the future.
