Its an end of an era for our shop, on Saturday (13th Feb) we are closing our Sheffield shop.
Don't worry we are not going anywhere we are still going to exist online and a nice big studio space at Neepsend and will be popping up at markets and fairs across the UK (and hopefully overseas)
There are a number of reasons for us closing our store but we can’t lie and it has just not been busy enough for the huge cost of a high street shop. It makes us all uber sad to close especially with how hard we have worked to get it open, but the last 18 months inside the forum in our shop has taught us a lot and this knowledge will help us to improve Sour Cherry.
The other reasons we are closing are not just the high running costs but its also not really suitable for laser cutting without the proper ventilation and there is no natural daylight which is sending us a bit crazy. We are also running out of working space, as our website grows we need more help making jewellery, photographing and adding it to the website and we are currently running at full desk space which really restricts us.
This move also means orders will get slightly delayed and no orders will go out from Wednesday 17th to Monday 22nd February while we move and set up our new studio. Next day delivery will be switched off during this time to avoid any confusion.
We want to thank everyone that has been to our shop and hope you will continue to shop online and come see us at events. We have a massive website upgrade in a few weeks so it’ll be even more awesome!
