At our AGM in June, we confirmed the exciting news that the shop will be moving back to our previous location at St John’s Church at the west end of Edinburgh after the summer. Our lease at Nicolson Square comes to an end at the end of September and we won’t be renewing it. Over the next few months we will be focused on designing and fitting out a brand-new shop at the newly refurbished premises at St John’s and we plan to open at in October.
We have loved being at Nicolson Square, our new customers and our hosts at the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church have been wonderful. Reluctantly we have come to the decision that we just do not have the resources to run two shops so moving is our best option. Our recent survey confirmed that the west end location is more accessible and popular for most of our customers and footfall is much higher.
Moving again so soon will, of course, mean a big upheaval. We will having a large sale of stock and fittings, we will be raising funds to help pay for the new fit-out and we will be calling on all our friends and helpers once again to help with packing up. We hope you will bear with us through this time of change, we will be sending regular updates and keep you informed every step of the way of our exciting new journey.
Our Crowdfunder will launch on Monday 28th August! Sign up to our newsletter, or join the event on Facebook to find out more.
