"We didn't start really start [advertising them] until Victoria made them mandatory," he said.

"No one hopes for us to wear masks, but we are here for people who need a mask and want something a bit fun. We've got some fun colourful ones, some beaded ones as well.
"I'm not sure what it's like in the suburbs, but we see a lot of colourful ones obviously around Oxford Street."
