TIMES ARE CHANGING – AND SO ARE WE
After having been in the brick-and-mortar retail business for 1 year, we’ve decided to shake things up a bit. We’ve closed our Brand Store #1 in Oehlenschlægersgade 12, CPH, Denmark and have moved all our products, tools, materials, books and pirate ships to an underground (literally) workshop outlet. Here we’ll stay for a while and just as a crouching tiger, we’ll leap as soon as we we’ve found a suitable target.
Besides launching our upcoming Bike Crate product series we’re currently toying with a few rather large concepts: a) building an educational and entrepreneurial physical work space, b) changing the game of sales and distribution forever, and c) riding the pop-up store concept wave in central Copenhagen.
We will keep you tightly updated!
And as always and forever, you can find us, our products and our thoughts online @ bymaik.com
