Year 1 Recap
Just wanted to take a step back, and share a few thoughts about our one year anniversary. Technically speaking August 3rd was our first day of business, we had a group of friends and family come through and browse our shelves. So today as I write this on August 2nd I want to look back and review our first year being opened before giving some insight on whats to come.
In this last year, so many lessons have been learned, so many challenges have been dealt with, and so many victories and losses have been won and lost. I am extremely proud of what I have been able to accomplish with Back and Forth the last 12 months. If you take a look at how far just the layout of the shop has come its crazy! Its hard to even look at how bare everything looked when we first opened! We have added some great brands since our initial offering, and gotten that much better and selecting product to stock. As we sit here today starting year two we are positioned better than ever to continue to delivery the best shopping experience possible, and reshape the perception of what a boutique store in Miami can be.
We will be celebrating very soon, I didn't want to just rush and throw a half hearted event, I want to make sure this celebration is special for those who have believed in me and my vision from day 1 and continue to do so today. I want to thank every single person who has taken the time out of their busy schedule to come visit the shop or come to one of our events. I want to thank every single person for believing in me and spending their heard earned money at the shop, you are extremely appreciated. I want to thank every single person who follows and engages with us on social media, without that engagement new people won't discover us and we wouldn't be able to continue growing into year two.
Lastly, I want to encourage anyone who is reading this and hasn't had the chance to come in store to check us out to do so. I want you to know the experience here is unlike any other out there, I encourage you to come hang out spend some time with us first, take a look at what we have to offer, sit down look at some of the reading material we have to offer, have a beer(if you're 21+, of course), converse with us. I never want anyone to be afraid to ask questions, try stuff on, and share your opinions with us. That is how we grow and how we are able to provide the best possible experience and store for you.
Enjoy some photos from our journey, see you at the shop, and as always hanging out is encouraged!
