Juanita Vell says they have lots more variety in their tackle and crab pots in Chilly Bin’s new cabinet
“We love our fishing and we love our bait,” declared Juanita Vell. She and Neville Tweed are well known in Rainbow Beach, not just for running the Chilly Bin, on the corner of Carlo and Karoonda Road, but also for their love of music.
Locals know the drive through shop has bulk ice and bulk bait: “It’s the only place you can buy 15kg ‘pillies’,” said Juanita.
They are excited because the Chilly Bin has a had a makeover, with new stock – even introducing local prawns.
“We’ve never had grocery items before! We have had some dresses and shorts before from Bali- but they only fit people who were size 3!” said Juanita.
“These will be quality products with better sizing. We’re going to have clothing, T-shirts, hats, thongs, sarongs, sunglasses and towels – that sort of thing.”
They have a new custom built fishing rod holder and more fishing rods in stock.
They will add a grocery section with sunscreen, insect repellent and camping gear.
“Perfect for holiday goers – bait, tackle and towels…everything for a day out,” she added – and conveniently located on the way to Inskip or Carlo Point!
“You need to come in a check out our tiger shark jaws, and maybe if you are lucky we’ll sing you a song!”
It’s well worth the stop – for the friendly service and a serenade from talented Juanita! Open 7 days, early to late or call 07 5486 3788.
