Relocation of Blackrock Shop

May 12 2009 – thisisknit

Ok, this is a pretty big announcement, so sorry if I “go on” a bit!! An exciting opportunity has come up for us to expand the City Centre branch of TIK and we are grabbing it with both hands! Although we would love to continue with the two existing branches, this expansion means that everything that is currently on offer in Blackrock will be relocated to the bigger, better and brighter Powerscourt location. From this one spot (well, actually, two spots but I’ll explain…) we will continue to offer, and expand upon, the very best in yarns, patterns, classes and events. The Blackrock shop will be open for business up to and including Saturday the 30th of May and “the big move” will happen over the June Bank Holiday weekend. The timing is incredible, as we first started trading on the June Bank Holiday weekend three years ago! We are incredibly grateful for the support of all our customers at the Blackrock location over the years. For those of you who have visited the City Centre branch before - you may have seen the unit which lies just across the corridor from our current location. We will be expanding into that unit and running TIK from both sides of the hall. We’re very excited about the fit out of the new space too, which will include some nice seating areas for pattern browsing. It's always nice to have a visual so you can see some "before" pictures of the new unit here: New Powerscourt Unit We sincerely hope to see you all there and, of course, online and telephone ordering will always be available. With Suffolk St Post Office just around the corner most people will receive their packages the next day so there’s no reason to be without yarn!

    Sorry to hear you are gone from Blackrock. Will have to make a trip to town now but it’s a great excuse! Congratulations on the expansion

    Best of luck! I’ve only been in the Powerscourt shop and can’t wait to be entranced by loads of lovely yarn, patterns etc. in your larger shop,. The city centre really needs a shop like this :) Congratulations!
