The Retailer – Fruity Capers
Fruity Capers already had its quirky name when Nuccio and Grace Camuglia bought the store in Toowong Village Shopping Centre 11 years ago, but it suits the Camuglias just fine – they’ve been in the fruit and vegetable business for more than 30 years!
Nuccio says it’s his passion for fresh fruits and vegetables which has kept him in the business for so long – and now, it’s his expertise and eye for quality produce that makes Fruity Capers the best place for local shoppers to buy their fruit and vegetables.
The store is especially popular with parents, with the vibrant colours of the fruits and vegetables on display tempting even the most health-food-averse kids to try a new taste or two; and with plenty of free samples always available, there’s plenty to discover at Fruity Capers year-round. The extensive deli section also offers a wide range of salads and deli meats to perfectly complement the fresh produce available.
The Camuglias are proud of their reputation for selling only the freshest, top-quality fruit and vegetables, and are always happy to share their incredible product knowledge with their customers. While Nuccio says he specialises in customer service, some of his regular customers might argue he has another specialisation, too – making sure customers only take home the absolute freshest produce, even if it means picking out the perfect handful of grapes or the sweetest, juiciest apples for them!
It’s this connection to their customers – forged by their outstanding customer service, as well as their support of local schools, bowls clubs, soccer and football clubs, and local charities – that make the Camuglias feel that Fruity Capers has earned its place as a healthy hub for the local community.
