Last Thursday 3/26 we opened up the GAMA-GO store, office, and warehouse to a small group of friends and family for an early preview.
GAMA-GO's own DJ Shred spun the tunes and we all had a great time showing off our hard work and mixing it up.
Here's a couple shots of the party and one of Chris and I taking care of last minute store stuff.
Stay closely tuned. We are now very, very close to opening the store.

The changing room went in today. Richard did another amazing job with the salvaged wood. I especially dig his touches on the header. Really sweet.
He also classed up the display case that I picked up last week. Now it looks like a part of the team!
This past weekend I came in and with the help of two plucky Canadians who just happened to stumble by & bang on the door - I got the Squid up in our office. Roping in strangers to do hard labor is all part of the GAMA-GO mystique!
We're getting really close. Loads of stuff rolling in this week.

The dividers are here and installed. The store space is now defined. The guys at Standby design did a fantastic job with sourcing the reclaimed wood and crafting the walls. Really exceptional.
The first couple of shots are from the store, the last is on the other side showing our open office where we're all busily making the donuts.
We moved yesterday into the new space downstairs. It was an epic project what with busting down all the racks and reassembling them. But we're in, we're up and running and we're all pretty jazzed. I'm really enjoying the view from my desk & it feels like we've all got a decent amount of space.
The fellas who designed and built the dividers for the store are here installing them, we also got the first of 6 racks & we're hemming and hawing over it's specifics. Thanks to everyone who helped with the move, great job!
In the shots above you can see a couple of the new space and what the dividers look like & then see a couple of the old space. Still got some cleanin' to do.
