Fire at our Melbourne shop
At about 1am on Wednesday 26 September, someone started a fire in a rubbish bin in the alley behind our Melbourne shop. It quickly spread into our shop where it burned fiercely until the fire brigade arrived.
While the fire burnt out the back of the shop, the front of the shop was filled with extremely hot smoke leaving light fittings, electrical work and products (not the vego bars!!) melted and everything covered in a thick layer of black soot.
We are determined to re-build but this may take a while as we have to dispose of everything, clean the whole place then re-do all the electrics, plumbing, walls, painting etc and replace all the shelving, computers, fridge etc etc. We will try to do this as quickly as possible but it's a huge job so please be patient. We're aiming for 3 weeks if all goes to plan.
Thank you all so much for your wonderful messages of support - they mean the world to us! If you would like to support us, the best thing you can do is order from our online shop so we can continue to earn an income while we rebuild.
