It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Auckland, New Zealand – Sitka is excited to announce they will be opening a flagship store in New Zealand on January 15 of 2011. The 1,500 square foot store will be located at 6 Osborne St. in Newmarket in Auckland.

 

The store will be the third flagship opened by Sitka and will be managed by New Zealand local, Andrew Howson. Sitka has already attracted people from the area to join the Sitka family and have worked out sponsorship agreements with the band Tahuna Breaks and surfers, Blake Meyers and Nicola Colson-Kolster.

 

The interior of the new retail location will be furnished with vintage furniture, don a living green wall and host a coffee bar. In traditional Sitka-style, the store fixtures will primarily be made of refurbished wood and will display the full Sitka clothing, surfboard and skateboard collection. The store concept was designed by owners, Rene Gauthier and Andrew Paine, and manager, Howson.

 

Sitka will host a soft opening party this Saturday after their first day open for business. They invite everyone down to check out the shop and enjoy some refreshments from 5 pm on.

 

More information on the grand opening will be made available closer to the opening.
