It was an awesome surprise to learn that we were up on BlogTO a couple days ago as one of the best new design stores in Toronto for 2013. I posted it right away to Facebook but I didn't get a chance to write about it until now.
Apparently, BlogTO put up a poll on their site for people to vote on a variety of "best new" things to do or places on their site. It was a surprise to me as I was focused on the holiday season and shipping orders out and practically zero leisure time to surf the net.
Thank you so much for all those that voted for us!
2014 is a huge year for us and we promise to up our game to a whole other level.
On the toy front, we have planned out a large score of premium Kidrobot products, a larger and stronger selection from our Japanese friends at Medicom Toy and an even stronger focus on bringing in dope independent artist toy projects.
In addition, we have been developing our own brand of toy and apparel products that we think the world will love and we can't wait to release them later this year. That will be huge.
On the tech front, we're currently in the middle of developing our first mobile app for iPhone and Android users. We're streamlining our internal processes to make way for better daily deals and more promotions. In addition, we're going to be adding some rad (yet subtle) technical advancements in our retail store including shopping enhancements with beacon technology and new digital experiences that isn't normally found in smaller boutique shops like ours.
We'll be bringing more happiness to more cities this year like Vancouver, Calgary, Regina, Ottawa, Montreal and we plan to also make an appearance for the first time in the US as well.
That's all I can reveal for now but I can tell you this...We care deeply about bringing in the best products that we offer to you but even more importantly we want you to know that we really put an emphasis on the experience that you will receive when you come into our shop or log on to our website. I genuinely want you to have the BEST time when you come in.
Thank you to everyone who made an order, came into the shop, liked us on Facebook, tweeted about us on twitter, hearted our instagram photos or just told their friends about us. We'd be nowhere without you.
And to the creative dreamers out there....keep doing what you love. Keep your imagination alive and keep inspiring.
