This will be a summer of change here at Funky Campus.
Regular customers know that we’re currently spread around three buildings; the main warehouse, console showroom and technical workshops, a separate office and our dinky little shop over the road, in total amounting to about 4,000 square feet.
An opportunity arose to take over the floor above our existing office, and we jumped at it – or rather we crawled at it, thanks to a sleepy landlord – and will spend the next month or so reorganising our lives to increase efficiency and add to the glorious Funky shopping experience for friends and customers.
Visitors will have already seen that the warehouse has been reorganised, space cleared and areas designated for stockrooms, shipping, goods in/out and console service bays as well as marketing, technical workshops and the funky kitchen.
Next stage in the process will be to relocate the office to the floor above the existing admin block, following which the ground floor will be converted into a showroom for new equipment, synths, keyboards, mics and various sundries. In addition to our famous speaker demonstration room, this will offer customers the best demo facilities in London, complete with free tea, coffee and smiles. Oh, and plenty of parking of course – but please remember to ask for a visitor’s permit.
The current shop will go but believe me, the rumble of passing traffic won’t be greatly missed.
So, by August we should be happily settled into our splendid new campus and as always, welcome visitors for a look around, a browse and a chat over a glass of water, a cup of coffee or a mug of tea.
