Today we open our doors to celebrate the first year of Clique.
When I think back to the day we first turned the open sign and opened the door to the public, I feel incredibly proud of what we have achieved in our first year. Our aim was to bring together all the aspects of the motorcycle scene that we loved and place it under one roof, adding the our Barbershop into the formate and create something that was truly unique.
I believe we we have achieved that aim.
We focused on bringing a fresh approach to high street retail. We wanted to create a destination for those that ride, and those that don't to engage in the culture that extends from our love of two wheels and the freedom that a full tank can give you.
We felt the tradition of old school customer service had been lost in the age of internet shopping, we wanted to bring that service back and this was a key element to us bringing our concept of Clique to a physical shop, extending that service through to the barbershop and truly focusing on the person in the chair creating an overall experience.
Thousands of customers and cuts later, increasing the brands we have from 8 to the 21 it is today, becoming a motorcycle dealership, being featured in Built Magazine, hosting a Pop Up Barbershop in the middle of a Tesco supermarket, being invited to talk to Business Degree students at Truro College, being featured as a top 10 destination in Cornwall, collaborating with such talented artists for Clique Customs, forging fantastic relationships with our distribution agents and local businesses are all things we are proud of, but it is the relationships we have formed with customers and they're engagement in our concept that makes us most proud.
We have worked tirelessly throughout this year to establish the first stage of what Clique will be, but that work in itself wouldn't be enough if it wasn't for the support of our friends and family . There are far too many people to mention here, but you all know who you are and what you have done for us, and we are eternally grateful.
Here's to the next 12 months...............................
