Over the weekend of 18th/19th of March, in the middle of shop-refurb madness and a new line being produced, we decided to pack our Ushi trailer full to bursting and head off to the Tri-Expo in Manchester.
We're headed to the Triathlon Expo this weekend! Can you spot us in their promo video?
It is such a fantastic event which, as it turned out, coincided with the weekend we had to be out of the shop to allow the refurbishment renovation work to get underway, so we were pretty excited (and relieved) to be attending!
The Tri-Expo is all things swimming, cycling and running, with lots of likeminded people gathering for talks, tours, demonstrations and plenty of retailers like us who love the great outdoors and being active. We were drawn to one sign in particular which read: “Triathlete – a person who doesn’t understand that one sport is enough”
The event also presented us with the ideal opportunity to showcase some old Ushi favourites which we needed to pass on to our fans to make way for the new range. As a result, we decided to offer 1 item for £10, 2 items for £15 and 3 items for £20… and the response was amazing.
We bumped into some old Ushi friends who took the opportunity to stock up, and of course we met some brand new friends along the way who bought their very first item from our range; and for those of you who couldn’t make it there’s still chance to grab a few of our classic favourites from our temporary site (10 Lowland’s Road, Mirfield); which we’ll be in until further notice when our shop is back to normal.
Got nothing to do on this rainy day? Come down to the Event City in Manchester to the TriExpo show and grab your self a…
Back home, our shop refurb continues and, although we can’t deny that things are a bit chaotic we really are loving the process.
We’re surrounded by beautiful bare brickwork, and you may have spotted an update or two from our designer Tom who’s working hard with the rest of the team to make sure there are regular updates going out across our social media channels.
