Jan's Summer Reading

in

What I've been reading...

      

Next weekend the Uppsala shop is moving!

in

We have been in our current location for almost 9 years and have now outgrown them. Sales are excellent (thanks guys!) so we feel this is now the right move for us.

But don't worry! We're not moving far, the new place is 25 meters west of the old one; it's actually in the same building but on the corner. Bigger, better, but just as nice.

The actual move will happen during next weekend, most of it during the Saturday. A lot of you have been kind enough to offer to come help out, which is really amazing of you. We do have the best customers. If you do want to help out, let us know beforehand so we can plan for food and such.

So, wish us good luck and we rely on your forebearance as the start-up will undoubtedly be a bit messy.

Jan, Christer & minions
