It’s Spring – a time for bringing in the new, and bidding farewell to the old. So it’s the perfect moment to talk a bit about our upcoming move to brand spanking new premises!
We’ve loved being at our current spot; the perfect borderline between the hustle of the CBD and creative enterprise of Woodstock. We’ve made so many new friends and customers! Along with them has come the need for fresh products and brands as we’ve grown alongside the creatives of Cape Town; expanding our offering as students, artists, designers and crafters have expanded their creative horizons.
The last five years have been all about learning and growth, and now we prepare to grow into our next adventure. The lease on our current space in Sir Lowry Road has come to an end. Our landlord has a few offers for the sale of the space and we were faced with a very tough decision. Do we stay, with the uncertainty of not knowing if and when we might be uprooted, or do we find a new home and resettle?
We opted for the latter, for two major reasons – certainty that where we are going will be a long-term move, and the fact that we’ll be moving into a brand new development (at 13 Brickfield Road, Salt River) so we have a shiny new space to call home! For customers who are familiar with our current premises you will know how exciting this is for us. Along with this new home, we will also be holding exciting new brands and we will be launching an awesome in-store project (more about this super-cool initiative in the coming weeks).
Five years ago, when we moved from Roodebloem Road to Sir Lowry Road we were filled with apprehension and wondered, “What if no-one follows us?” That fear was quickly put to rest by the most amazing support from all you wonderful people out there, who have made The Deckle Edge the success it is today. On behalf of every single one of The Deckle Edge team; THANK YOU! We are seriously looking forward to this next adventure and we hope you are too.
Here’s to new beginnings. Happy Spring!
