Oooops, we seem to be having some problems with our website - we were migrated to a new server on Friday and something's not running as smoothly as it should... Sorry about this, please bear with us while we get it fixed!

New Year, New Workshop!

January 8, 2014 - 2:43pm

2014 is a year of change for us at Dojo.

After 16 years in our lovely old silk hat factory in Manchester we are about to start a period of refurbishment and building work. We moved into a new workshop between Christmas and New Year and we are going to be here for quite a while. It's been quite an upheaval as we have swapped the industrial landscape of the city for the green rolling hills of the Welsh Borders! During this time our shop will be closed but our manufacturing and sales are going ahead as normal from our new place.

We have tried to keep any disruption to a minimum but there have been some delays in getting phone lines sorted out (Christmas/New Year has proved a somewhat tricky time administratively...) so there are going to be a few days this week where you may not be able to contact us directly and we won't have credit/debit card processing facilities. However you can leave a message on our answer phone, or send us an email.

Warm wishes (our new workshop has a toasty little office!) for a bright and beautiful New Year!

Christmas is Coming...

November 26, 2013 - 1:25pm

And our little workshop is filling up with orders!

We are fast approaching our Christmas/New Year shutdown and the time frame for completing orders before Christmas is narrowing. Whilst we can usually make up items super-quick if necessary, the carrier's ability to deliver at such a busy time is more limited. We have been busier than ever this year, so if you are hoping to order a mattress or futon for delivery before Christmas then please contact us as soon as possible.

The last open days for coming into our shop this year are going to be Friday 13th and Saturday 14th December. We will then be closed until the new year.

Saturday 16th November

November 2, 2013 - 12:43pm

Just to let you know, we will be closed all day on Saturday 16th November - so don't make a special journey to see us then! We will still be open on the Friday before as normal 10 - 5.

1 Week Closing in September...

September 4, 2013 - 1:17pm

We have had it posted on our site for a while by our opening times, but just as a reminder - we will be closed for a week from Monday 16th September, which means that the shop won't be open Friday 20th or Saturday 21st September and no messages will be taken from the phone during that week.

We are pretty much up to date with our manufacturing, so on the whole it shouldn't affect our lead times. But if you do need something quickly then let us know as soon as possible!

Annual Shut-Down 2013

April 13, 2013 - 2:31pm

Our shop and workshop will be closed, as usual, for our annual shutdown from the middle of May. Our last day before we close will be Saturday 11th May, the shop will be open (and we will be answering the phone) until 4.00. We will re-open on Wednesday 19th June and the first shop day will be Friday 21st June.

We are heading south and will be camping in France and Spain during this time, but we will be in email contact as much as sensibly (!) possible, so you can still ask questions and place provisional orders. It can get quite busy for the first few weeks after we open, and we already have orders booked in for when we return, but we will do our absolute best to accommodate urgent delivery dates!

Just a Reminder...

February 27, 2013 - 10:05pm

...that we will be completely closed on Saturday March 2nd. We will be open on Friday March 1st, as usual 10 - 5.

Looking ahead a little more, our shop will be closed over Easter on Friday and Saturday 29th and 30th March and then the weekend after, Friday and Saturday 5th and 6th April. Unfortunate timing, really, but we will be taking part in an aikido seminar the weekend after the Easter weekend.

Christmas Closing

December 1, 2012 - 1:00am

Frost on the inside of the workshop windows this morning reminds me how fast we're heading to proper winter and that means we don't have too long to go now until our End Of Year - Beginning Of Year shut down...

This year the very last day we can send mattresses and futons for delivery before Christmas is Thursday 20th of December. So, if you want something made and delivered before we close, make sure you get your order in as soon possible - we are really getting quite busy now as the Christmas deadline approaches! We will do whatever we possibly can to fulfil all orders, we often find ourselves working evenings at this time of year, but in the end the limiting factor may well be that we run out of fillings as most of our suppliers only take orders until the middle of December. Our little workshop will be stuffed full of wool, coir and latex, but when it's gone it's gone, until 2013 of course... We already have orders on for the beginning of next year, so if you need something in early January then it is worth letting us know before we close.

This year we are closed from Friday 21st December until Tuesday 8th January. The first shop day of 2013 will be Friday 11th January.

Some Saturday Closings in November

October 27, 2012 - 2:41pm
November Fire

Just a quick reminder that we will be closed for 2 Saturdays in November - the 17th and the 24th. We'll be open on the Fridays as normal.

No Saturday Aikido events for months and then 2 come at once!

One Week Closing Coming Up...

September 7, 2012 - 2:52pm

Just an advance warning about a one week closure coming up at Dojo EcoShop.

We will be closed from Sunday 16th September for a week, which means that the workshop will be closed all of that week and the shop will be closed on Friday and Saturday 21st and 22nd September.

On the whole this shouldn't affect deliveries too much as we are still completing orders at the moment and as we go into the week of the 10th of September our usual 10 - 14 day lead time will cover most things ordered that week...

We're hoping for some extra sunshine while we are closed - we are going to be trekking the hills around Hay-On-Wye on horseback!
