A big year. Unicorn’s landlords decided to sell up, so we had three options – close, relocate, or buy the whole site ourselves.
We all know how that ended! An amazing outpouring of support from our community enabled us to raise £350,000 in customer loanstock, which together with other loan finance made us the proud owners of a 10,000ft² site, doubling our shop floor space in one go. We added a third till and crucially, we became visible from the main road, which may explain what happened the following year!
