Yesterday, I told you that a big announcement was coming. And, as promised, here it is!
Let me preface what I’m about to tell you with some thoughts. This business began as a hobby years ago. Along the way, it evolved and grew into a full time passion, beginning with our pop up shops. When the city came to us nearly two years ago now, and suggested we should open a brick and mortar location, we jumped in feet first and wholeheartedly. Along with our online store. Then on Dec 4, 2014, we opened the doors along with our friends at Urban Halo, and never looked back.
What we’ve come to realize is that our business is much more than just another store. We look at Wild Ruffle as our mission field. It’s a place where we get to love on women whom we may never have come in contact with otherwise. It’s a privilege to be allowed into a stranger’s life in even a small way, and we take that seriously. It means so much to us.
And now, that mission field is expanding. This spring, the Wild Ruffle Shop is moving. Yep – we’re heading two doors down, into the same building as our favorite bakery, Edelweiss.
Wild Ruffle’s new address: 16186 Main Ave SE, Suite 100; Prior Lake, MN 55372
Our square footage will be more than twice the space that we currently occupy, and we can’t wait to fill it up with all kinds of fabulous items for you to peruse.
Something to put on your calendar: our Grand Opening party, happening the evening of Friday, May 6th. It’ll be a special night for friends, family, and our customers who have supported us so well this past year. If you’d like to get on the invite list, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also for your calendar: our official Grand Opening day, on Saturday, May 7th. We’ll have trunk shows, and of course, we’ll have our new space decked out and ready to go.
In the meantime, we’ll still be at our old location through the end of April… it should be a fairly seamless transition for us as we roll our racks down Main Avenue. Urban Halo will be taking over the whole spot at our current digs, so don’t forget to continue to pop in there regularly and show them your love too!
Our commitment to give back remains intact – last year, thanks to your support, we were able to give away most of our profits to missions and other charitable organizations. We can’t wait to see where this year takes us, and the worldwide impact we’re able to have, right from our little lake town here in Prior Lake, Minnesota. (If you’d like to find out how you can fundraise for your favorite charity, we’d love to chat!)
We’re also looking forward to being able to host more parties – with more space to move around, we can host more people inside. Whether you’d like to have a private party, craft night – you name it, the sky is the limit – we can’t wait to be your new go-to spot for celebration central.
If you would be so kind – could you take a moment and share our news with your friends and family, whether by forwarding this email, spreading it word of mouth, or sharing the link to this post on social media? You guys are our best cheerleaders, and we’re so thankful for you!
