After nearly three months of being without a shop (and over half a year of location-scouting), we have finally got a new home - albeit temporarily. The Great Western Arcade has become known as the foremost location in Birmingham city centre for independent and speciality shops, and we have come to a short term agreement with them to take over a unit that would otherwise have been vacant until Spring next year.
This all came about at the last minute - as in, within the last 2 weeks! As such, it's been a mad rush to get open in time for Christmas which is why you may have noticed something of a radio silence from us recently. There's hardly been a spare moment to document anything, and it has only been possible thanks to the help of a number of incredible friends and collaborators. Special thanks must go to Patina 74, Seven 9 Signs, the Martins and Kris, all of whom really pushed the boat out at short notice.
We will be open for business on Thursday this week (19 November) but please note this is very much a soft launch - stock will still be arriving, new staff will still be getting trained and there might be some cosmetic things that aren't quite right yet, so your patience is appreciated. A proper launch party and official opening will be announced soon.
Find us at 9 Great Western Arcade, Birmingham, B2 5HU from Thursday. Opening hours are subject to change as we find our way into the swing of things, but initially we'll be open 9.30-18:00, 7 days a week.
See you soon!
