On the move! Again! (UGH)

January 15, 2018

Holland Road Yarn Co is moving to Lyall Bay

Yes, that's right, we're collecting all our yarn in our arms and wandering off to a new store. The Grand Arcade is up for redevelopment which means we unfortunately are faced with yet another move.

Firstly: it sucks. It's frustrating. It's been incredibly difficult to find new premises. We would much rather stay exactly where we are, trust me. 

Last day Willis Street - Sat 24 Feb

First day Lyall Bay - Fri 2 March

New Lyall Bay hours:

Friday, Saturday, Sunday 10am - 4pm

(we may extend these once we've settled in)

Long story short, we're off to Lyall Bay. It's our best solution to a tough problem and know it will be inconvenient to many. We will be offering 'studio' hours in the new location, and continue shipping online orders every day. The plan is to be back in the CBD in 2019, catering to all your yarny needs.

You'll find us upstairs in the Real Surf building at 68-74 Kingsford Smith Street from Friday 2 March.

Our new neighbours include the wonderful Sue Dasler pottery, Parrotdog craft beer and Busters Woodfired Pizza. Just around the corner is the excellent Busy Bee Quilt shop. Not to mention the beautiful beach, Bunnings, and the big box retail park just along the road.

Keep an eye out for beer and pizza knit nights from April (yum!).

Again, we do know how much of a pain this will be to many who love the convenience of us being in the heart of Wellington city. It's a pain for us, too! Rest assured this is only a temporary relocation, and if it's too far for you to travel we are always available online. There's also a plan up our sleeves for a special personal shopping service. 

Much love, Tash & the HRYC team

Last day Willis Street - Sat 24 Feb

Hi Tash and team,
Sorry to hear you’re moving but on the bright side, lots of free car parking in Lyall Bay, so lots of time to browse and consider purchases. Will be nice (hopefully?) to have natural light again to see the yarn and beautiful colourways. Love the idea of being close to Parrot Dog and and the Pizza and Beer might just get me along to a knit night finally! There’s just one thing left to do, convince Sue to create some bespoke ceramic yarn bowls! Best of luck for the move.

It’s also near the Spruce Goose, so I’m sure Dave and I can meet some people there for brunch and plane-watching… and yarn shopping ?
