A collection of our thoughts, sharing inspiring refill, reuse, retail & sustainability culture from around the world


Unpackaged Newsletter – 12.11.12

Hi All,

Last Thursday was our official 5 year anniversary – how time flies! This month it’s all about the new shop – we are very excited and, by the chats we’re having over the counter, you are too…

Whilst we are very sad to be leaving Amwell St, a place we have called home for 5 years, we need a bigger space and more freedom to grow. With our new shop, cafe & bar in Hackney, we can continue with our environmental mission and offer you all a much broader and better service.

Our dedicated team from Amwell Street will spearhead the move and we welcome our new director, chef Kate De Syllas who will be tantalising your taste buds with her kitchen and bar creations… Our team is also growing so we look forward to introducing them to you in due course.

The space itself is shaping up too. Our really exciting challenge was to take the best bits of Amwell St and move them into a much newer building. Under the direction of our favourite designers, Multistorey, and the skills of our incredible team of carpenters, we hope you’ll agree that the new space has its own unique feel – we can’t wait to show it to you!

So, the details you need to know:

Your Invitation: ‘Bring a Friend’ 
We are very grateful to you all for shopping with us on Amwell St and supporting us these past 5 years. Most of our conversations at the counter seem to result in customers telling us that their brother, sister or best friend live on London Fields so we’ve created the ‘Bring a Friend’ voucher – buy a cup of tea, coffee or glass of wine in the new shop and get one free! Pick up your voucher at Amwell Street from tomorrow.  In addition, we’re holding a Loyalty Card Amnesty – if you have a loyalty card with 5 or more stamps, redeem it in store for your ‘Bring a Friend’ voucher to our new shop!

We will be organising a string of opening events in the new shop and will email you an invitation but please do like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to follow our progress.

Best wishes,
Catherine & The Team
