Pavlo Phitidis, business growth specialist

Miller's Antiques owner Carmit Bamberger says she took over the business in 2010 when her father passed away.

She explains that despite changes and challenges, the core style of the business has remained the same.

Bamberger says that specialising in custom finishing has helped Miller's Antiques differentiate itself from competition.

My customers come in to pick and mix what they like. We offer them many years of experience and go on a journey with them.

Carmit Bamberger, owner of Miller's Antiques

Business growth specialist Pavlo Phitidis advises that Miller's Antiques advantage is its historic significance and consistently traditional style.

Phitidis says that the business is well positioned but should modernise its marketing and promotion platforms in order to grow.
