February Plans & Progress Update

February Plans & Progress Update

This month we’re kicking things off with restocks of Jaipur, Kingdomino and Flip Over Frog which were top sellers over Christmas. New games this month include Love Letter (just in time for Valentine’s day!) We’ve also got the wonderful excellent children’s games Outfoxed and Leaps and Ledges.

Our orders of The Isle of Cats, Photosynthesis, Happy Salmon and the super-quirky Quacks of Quedlinburg finally came in, so we’re happy to report that they’re available through our web store too..

The café itself has had some ~20 games added to the library as we’ve cleared house a bit to make room for them. On the building and renovation side of things, we’ve also had some work done on our kitchen that will allow us to invest in some new equipment to help get our tasty veggie/vegan delights out just a little bit quicker (as we’re takeaway only at the moment!)

In other news, we’re also upgrading the front of the shop with some snazzy-looking awning (with a view to things properly re-opening at some point in the summer). This should help us create a little outside seating and protect the front of the shop from the elements.

The staff are mostly furloughed at the moment, but that’s not stopping us doing everything we can to grow our online business and improve the café, games library and overall look, feel and aesthetic of the place. We’ve plenty of plans in the works, but somewhat limited capacity to execute, due to our “skeleton crew”.

We’re really looking forward to reopening at some point in the future! It’s been a rough ride these past few months, but hopefully we’re nearly on the other side of it. Until then, thanks so much for supporting us, stay safe, and we’ll see you soon! 🙂
