Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe but it’s already been 3 years since we’ve been at the Ouchii Boutique located at 75 Dempsey Road, Milpitas and our lease is ending! Upon some major reflection and studying of the retail industry and its current state, I decided that Ouchii, like always has to continue to evolve.
Instead of renewing our boutique, I have decided to partner with existing retailers to launch official Ouchii authorized locations. These locations will have an exclusive section of their stores dedicated to selling our products and will be a place where you can continue to pick up online orders!
The first authorized location will be located in Eastridge Mall, within HellaTees – you may catch me there sporadically throughout the month working on our Ouchii section. Our second authorized location will be announced shortly – keep your eyes peeled. I’m hoping to launch the second location by December.
So what does that mean for October?
For October, we will only be open on Saturdays for people to continue to pick up their orders. Beyond the end of this month all online pick ups will be moved to our Eastridge location. Once the other location opens, new orders will have the option to be picked up there as well.
I want to take the time to thank everyone for supporting my business from its very beginnings in 2013 as a table at DeAnza Flea Market, to the immensely successful pop ups at Valley Fair, Great Mall and Oakridge, to our lovely boutique. And I thank you in advance for continuing our journey into 2020 as we continue to grow in this next phase as we partner with retail stores and continue to grow online.
Onward and Upward,
Alvin / @theOuchiiGuy
