We are delighted to announce we have won the "Grow at Overgate" competition!
We first heard about this amazing opportunity on our local radio station while we were busy in our workshop. The Overgate shopping centre had launched “Let’s Grow”, a competition where local businesses were encouraged to apply for a rent-free retail unit. Without hesitation, we began working on our written application and video. After an informal second-stage interview, we were overwhelmed to have been chosen as the lucky winner.
Now, we have turned our attention to preparing our shop for opening. We are so excited to bring our ideas to life. We are hoping to add fun experiences to the shopping process, including photo opportunities, hands-on elements and a behind the scenes look at our products being made!
Our launch date is TBC, with some delays being experienced due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We are staying positive however and are continuing to prepare as much as we can in the meantime. We will announce a new launch date soon, and we are of course still fulfilling online orders so have a browse here.
We are sharing our journey on our Instagram feed and stories, so make sure to follow us to see our ideas come to life.
We had always dreamed our online business would lead to a brick and mortar shop. Without the support of the Overgate and this competition, however, we weren’t sure how to achieve this. As a small, family-run business from Dundee, this is a huge opportunity for us. We really can't thank the team at the Overgate enough for this life-changing opportunity. It really is a dream come true for our family.
