  • 5. Annah Stretton's beginning
    Annah Stretton is a born and bred Waikato girl. She attended local high schools (Karamu and Tararua) and, other than a few years in her late teens studying art in Otago, she has lived here all her life.
    She started a Stretton Clothing Company in Morrinsville, and that's where it remains'. Other manufacturers may have been made and possibly had been taken advantage of other foreign sweatshops, Annah Stretton chose not to.
    “As I drove forward and set up a retail base, I really believed a big part of our point of difference was that we were New Zealand made. That's very important to people. We're still price sensible, especially in the provincial environment, there's no need to go offshore.
    “I can still make a profit and pay the team at market rates. It's good for our industry. People believe that we make our clothes in our Morrinsville head office when really we contract with CMT factories throughout New Zealand.”
  • 6. Annah Stretton's beginning
    Of business
    Annah Stretton started Stretton Clothing Company in 1992, selling clothes under the label Annah S. Her office was the spare bedroom in the house on the rural dairy farm she and her husband owned and she combined her business operations with being a full-time mum to her two pre-school aged children.
    Within a year, she made $1 million with 50 percent profitability. Originally Annah S clothing was sold into other stores, but a few years later Stretton began opening her own boutiques in the Waikato. Today it is a multi-million dollar business that sells internationally and has stores throughout the country.
    In 2005 Stretton bought Her Business magazine and worked as editor, commissioning stories on successful women entrepreneurs and giving business tips. Within a few months it was one of New Zealand's fastest growing business titles.

  • 9. An interesting selection Eden. You have done a good job of putting this together.
    The next step that I would like to see is some personal voice in your responses. What you think or reasons why things happen.
    It would also be nice to see some referencing of information, where you have got information from.
