Following last months announcement that we will be adapting how to operate to secure our long term future, I can now confirm that we have lots of change currently happening behind the scenes and we also have lots more to come in the New Year.
At this moment in time, here is what you need to know:
We are on the move…
We will be moving premises and from the 22nd December 2023 until when we are setup in our new home, production will be closed. We hope that production will reopen towards the end of January 2024.
If you require anything this side of February 2024, please make sure to place your order ASAP (ideally before Friday 8th December to guarantee dispatch before we close for the big move).
Discontinued items from our Classic Mini catalogue...
We are currently in the process of closing down our woodshop and we will not be setting a woodshop up in our new home, moving forward all of our woodwork will be outsourced.
This is why we have dropped (or will be dropping shortly) dashboards, centre consoles, footwell map shelves, heater cover consoles, armrests, cup holder consoles, dash rail speaker pods, door cappings and kickboards from our catalogue.
None of the above are popular items these days and to be perfectly honest, dropping it all from our catalogue won’t be loss to today’s Mini community. Times have changed and it’s one of the reasons why we are having to adapt what we offer.
We still have a few dashboards, heater cover consoles and dash rail speaker pods available in our stocks, so please get in touch ASAP if you fancy one. For reference, orders of dashboards, heater cover consoles or dash rail speaker pods will need to be confirmed by Friday 8th December.
We have an extremely busy run in up to the Christmas period, not only working on your orders (to ensure we get as much out as possible before our production shut down) but also with the close-down of Optimise HQ prior to the big move, to our new HQ in January.
I will likely be back in touch before Christmas with another update, but just in case our workload gets the better of me, may I also take this opportunity to wish you and your Mini a Merry Christmas!
