Kia ora koutou e hoa mā,
We are super excited to announce that after a long search, much learning, and some disappointments - V1 has found a home!
Although we started with our hearts set on being in Newtown, it just wasn't able to happen - but we think that the location we have secured is going to be even better, and more accessible for you.
The V1 Vegan Store will be moving in to the People's Palace building - 207 Cuba Street in late March, just in time for the Cuba Dupa festival. Super close to Aunty Mena's, The Cross, Midnight Espresso and many other favourite vegan spots, we'll be bring you all the choicest plant based goodies and goodness.
We'll be stocking ready-to-eat baked goods from some of our favourite Wellington bakers, alongside all the vegan cheeses, snacks and plant meats.Oh, and did we mention the vegan pick and mix?!
Do we have any vegan options? Yes - EVERYTHING!
It's not too late to drop us a line with a list of what you'd like to see in store, either by dropping us an email or through Instagram or Facebook. Check in for tantalising shots of new products and store developments.
Store hours will be 10am to 6pm Tuesday to Sunday, but we'll be online too for shopping any time.
If you're a supplier with a cruelty-free product that you think the vegans of Wellington will want to see - drop us a line!
We look forward to seeing you in store in March.
To all of you who have filled out our survey, liked our page, joined our email list, shared our posts and helped us out in a myriad of ways, THANK YOU. The support from this community has been overwhelming and much appreciated.
He mihi aroha ki a koutou,

V1 Vegan Store
V1 is a family business - and we've thrown our hearts (and family savings) into this project that we feel super passionate about.
Here we'll keep you updated with progress on V1 and the store space - the highs and the lows - and let you know what's coming up in the near future.
For now our focus is on getting the web-store running, the lease signed and the shop fitout completed.
We're looking forward to seeing you in the shop soon!
Manda, Russell, Jayzien and Edie.
