When we began Kidult and Co way back in 2015 (it feels like a lifetime ago!), we knew we wanted to make it big. We weren’t content with floating along as a small brand, getting a few orders here and there. We created our gender-neutral clothing line because it’s something we really believed in and we wanted you guys to believe in it too.
So, when we look at where we are now, to say we’re happy would be an understatement. It’s incredible how many of you lot have invested in what we do and our passion, giving us the opportunity to come this far! We can’t ever thank our customers enough; you’re all awesome, use the code ‘ONTHEUP’ for 20% off your next order as a thank you!
Now we’re about to enter the finishing few laps of 2017 (is it too early to say that?), we wanted to let you know what’s been going on with Kidult and Co in a pre-end-the-year-rundown. We’re sure we’ll have more news for you in the next coming months, but if we left it all until the end of the year the post would be a mile long!
Our New Base
Our first bit of exciting news is that we’ve moved the Kidult and Co headquarters – we’ve always wanted to say that – to the Prinny Mill Business Centre in Haslingden, Rossendale. We now have a full-time base to work from! We’re pretty stoked about it.
Not only does this give us plenty of room to expand our brand and team, we can now do all that grown up business stuff, like have meetings and sort our admin in a professional environment. We now have all the tools we need to bring you tons of new gender-neutral kid’s clothes. It’s a big move for us!
If you’d like to check out the new home for Kidult and Co, why not pop over to Prinny Mill’s website? Then you can see the pictures of our awesome scenic views and imagine our little team working away in our brand-new space!
Whether you’re drinking water, tea or something stronger, raise your glass now to our twins, Melissa and Laura, who have just started working full time on Kidult and Co! As two of our lovely founders and gender-neutral-dreamers, we couldn’t be happier that they now have the opportunity to put their life and soul into the brand full-time.
When we created Kidult and Co, we could only dream of being able to leave our other jobs and work full-time on something we love; but here we are! Well, two of us anyway; hopefully Emily-Jo will be able to join us too. Congratulations to us, and here’s to many more years of full-time Kidult working! *raises mug of tea*
Rossendale Business Award
On top of all this great stuff, last month we heard the brilliant news that Kidult and Co have once again been nominated for a Rossendale Business Award. How amazing is that? We were so excited when we found out! To be recognised as a successful business in our local area is incredible and something we could never get tired of.
Last year, we were honoured to win the Creative Business category. We loved attending the event, meeting other inspiring business owners and eating lots of food (of course) and we can’t wait to do it all over again! We’ll let you know more about our nomination as and when we know. The evening itself will be on November 15th, so remember to wish us luck!
Orders On The Up
On top of everything else, as we’ve been seeing now for some time, our orders are still consistently on the rise and we don’t want to curse anything, but it’s projected to continue that way. We’ve had some awesome new customers who are gender-neutral newbies as well as repeats from some great guys and girls who have shopped with us before.
The fact that our brand is continuing to go from strength to strength is very exciting. Looking at where we are now, we can’t wait to see what the future holds! We’d just like to thank all of our customers, friends and social media followers who make our business what it is. We’d be nothing without you lot.
Get In Touch
If you’d like to join us by defying the social norms and not letting gender stereotypes define your child, check out our unisex clothing. Clothes should be an extension of your personality, not a way to identify your gender, and our fashionable clothing is loved by both little boys and girls.
If you’d like to get in touch with our friendly team with any questions or enquiries, please do. We love to chat with our customers and we’re always happy to help!
