This news will certainly come as a surprise to many of you but Unpackaged Hackney is to close. Our last day of trading will be Tuesday 7th January 2013.
When we moved from Islington to Hackney, the dream was to open a space to eat alongside the shop that would showcase the ingredients we sell and provide a place for like-minded people to meet and share ideas.
For many reasons, the Unpackaged bar & restaurant didn’t work out and proved a distraction from the core business of Unpackaged – our retail business. Now, we have been left with premises far too big for our needs and our only option is to sell the lease. Whilst this is an unfortunate turn of events – as we were just getting settled back into the area in which we started – we will use the break to work on our next step and Unpackaged will rise stronger for the experience.
You will be able to come down and stock up with refills from tomorrow, Saturday 28th December at 10am. Please see below for our full opening hours, we’re well stocked and there will be bargains galore!
There will be time for thanks, and we want to do it in person with you. On Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th January we want to invite all our customers, suppliers, supporters, friends and family to come down, break bread with us and send this version of Unpackaged off with the love it deserves.
We will be serving all-day brunch over the weekend and hosting a special pot-luck dinner on the Saturday night. You can book by emailing email@example.com (no advance menu available, please just specify meat or veggie when you book).
We look forward to seeing you.
