We’ve been at our Great North Rd warehouse for just over 3 years now, and it’s with tremendous excitement that we can now announce that we’re moving to pastures new! We’re not moving too far – just 6 minutes drive on a Wednesday morning to be exact (post rush hr) – but the new place is over FOUR TIMES BIGGER! Mitre10 Mega man would be well stoked, seeing as he’s all concerned with girth and whatnot.
Great North Rd has been great to us over the past few years though; it’s helped having Kokako Organic close by, closer still is the Newton Fish n Chippery, and grosser still is McDonalds (but frequented nevertheless). We’ve had a wedding (not in the warehouse, but Phil got married in the time we’ve occupied the building), 3 engagements, and most recently a baby conceived (again, not in the warehouse, well, not that I know of at least), and we’ve generally had a good bit of fun most days.
We’re stoked that we’re continuing to grow – even though it does get quite costly moving all the time – and we thank everyone that’s ever bought from us, liked a status on our facebook, tweeted us or come in to the store. You guys are tops.
Here are a few photos of the new place being renovated. It’s big.
The Boardroom to the left, where matters of only the highest importance will be addressed.
The office space/spa room. Where we do our lovin with the women, and a little bit of swimmin.
Whoever took this photo has a nifty iPhone and a steady hand.
The retail store will go in the top left area, the rest will be used for roller skating, mostly.
Warehouse space for Hayden and Cal.
This is a glory hole, presumably and thankfully a tradesman has labelled it.
