We can't believe its only been three years. But its true.
30.04.2018 - After 5 months of preparing and setting up, hundreds of hours of work and countless late nights - I still remember it like it was yesterday. Like many nights in the last two years - I couldn’t sleep! We were both excited and nervous for what may or may not happen on our first day. Can you believe that we received an unbelievable 36 orders on our opening day? We just couldn’t believe it.
Time flies when you're having fun and it feels like yesterday when we opened the doors of our online shop. But all this happened nearly three years ago and on Friday Oskar's Wooden Ark is turning 3 years old. We can't believe how far we have come over the last three years and none of this would have been possible without you, our customers and community.
We are incredibly grateful for your loyalty, your support, your honest feedback and reviews and helping us grow. With your help we are now able to not only support our family but also the families of our wonderful staff members. We got the keys to our new warehouse last week which means we now have space to work more efficiently and offer more amazing brands to Australian families in the future.
In order to celebrate our 3rd birthday, we have planned some amazing surprises for you and are giving you the chance to win some fun prizes. Read below what we have planned on each day, follow us on Instagram and join our Facebook group "The Wooden Ark Family" and don't forget to take part for your chance to win.
We hope you have a wonderful week and find the time to celebrate with us!
Simon with Thuy, Oskar & Klara
