  • Or at least it used to be.

  • We've gone, moved out, vacated the premises.

  • I don't want to tell you why we've been in this building since 2000 and 11.

  • It's actually not far away from our very first location under the railway.

  • Ouch.

  • Back then, we knew we wanted to stay within the neighborhood during our search.

  • Tim Williams saw this warehouse for rent on a cycle home.

  • When we got in touch, and while it needed a huge amount of work, we could afford it.

  • And so we moved in, doing a lot of that early construction ourselves.

  • Over time, we took on Maura, Maura, the building until we had the whole thing.

  • A couple of years ago, our landlord changed.

  • Someone bought the building, and at the end of 2018 our lease was up on.

  • That meant renegotiating our lease from scratch.

  • Our new landlord felt inappropriate rent would be four times what we were currently paying.

  • While we negotiated for awhile, we only managed to get it down to a mere tripling of the rent if we chose to stay.

  • Frankly, we didn't feel comfortable feeding the greed of London landlords.

  • We didn't want to raise our prices or impact the earnings of the team just to feed the greed of one man.

  • So we left.

  • It's bittersweet, sad to leave a neighborhood that we've been part off for so long, but exciting because a new space will let us do so much more.

  • So where have we gone?

  • What are we doing there?

  • You'll just have to wait and see.
