Hi folks! People have been asking us a lot when we’re going to open. Obviously we would have loved to pick our opening date weeks ago, but despite the best efforts of all our contractors and subcontractors, little issues always spring up to slow things down and we didn’t want to make any promises without knowing exact schedules. But! Everyone is essentially done. This week we should be having our last few inspections and getting our equipment delivered. If everything goes well, we’ll be open next week. We will probably have limited hours for the first week while we’re still getting all our new folks trained (and getting used to the space ourselves!) We’ll post another update as soon as all our inspections are over. See you all soon!

      Surely you didn't already open the shop and forget to notify all your backers via the platform that helped raise those precious funds???

      Man, those inspections must be fierce!

      Hey Keely,

      We're just really behind on getting stuff out - we just got our shirts back from the printer. Email us at and we will get your stuff out to you! (Unless you're local, in which case you can pick your stuff up anytime after we open.)

      should I be concerned that I haven't gotten any of my stuff yet then? I haven't gotten tshirt, stickers or anything that I pledged for. :(
