You may have noticed a few changes happening here at Hunting for George and I wanted to share with you an important decision we have made. Hunting for George will no longer operate its online retail store, instead we will continue to operate as a creative media company. Focusing on creating more fun and unique stories for you to enjoy on our blog and social media channels.
Hunting for George has always been much more than just a retailer. Since day one we have sought to create unique stories to share with our community and my passion for this aspect of the brand has always been what inspires me.
Whilst you will no longer be able to buy your beautiful homewares and furniture directly from us online we will continue to be your go-to source of inspiration for the home, design and lifestyle. Including us bringing you even more of what you love, such as the best in homewares, home tours, how-to’s and more.
We will continue to manage ongoing customer service and order fulfilment. So for all our lovely customers waiting for their orders to be fulfilled, please rest assured nothing will change. Our dedication to customer experience has always been incredibly important to us. Should you have any questions or concerns at all, please do not hesitate to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have learnt so much over the past 9 years in retail and I’m extremely proud of all our achievements. I won’t sugar coat it, retail is tough and for the most part we loved the hustle. However in the end, our retail offering became a costly distraction from the area of our business that was most fulfilling and successful.
We hope that you understand and respect our reasons for closing the online shop and very much hope to have your continued support of Hunting for George in all we have planned for the future.
To all of our lovely customers whether you shopped with us once, twice or were one of our regulars. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for putting your trust in us and choosing to support our business.
To all the wonderful people that have helped to promote our brand, whether it be word of mouth to friends, sharing our posts on social media, coming to our events, visiting our showroom, giving us 5 stars for a job well done, telling us you love what we do or even just commenting on our instagram to share your thoughts. Thank you for being part of our community and our journey. You’re the reason we love doing what we do. Thank you.
Lastly to our incredible team and every single person that has worked for or helped Hunting for George over the years, thank you! It has been a phenomenal team effort that has evolved over time and what we achieved during our time as a retailer was simply outstanding!
I hope that our decision to close the retail component of our business does not leave you upset. We’d rather you share in our excitement for our next chapter… after all, just imagine the amazing stories we’re going to create now that we’ve got both our eyes on the ball.
Please keep watching. Keep talking. Keep sharing.
We love you all!
