Our Exciting Move Online and What It Means for You!

Our Exciting Move Online and What It Means for You!

Amanda Teng

 Hey there, wonderful Everyday Vegans!

Can you believe it’s almost been a year since our successful crowdfunding launch last July? Time sure flies when you're on an incredible journey, and let me tell you, your support has been nothing short of amazing. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! 🙏

Since we started the Everyday Vegan Discount Club on November 1st last year, we've learned so much about what you, our vibrant community, value most. You’ve shown us that having a diverse and expansive catalog of exotic, fun, and healthy vegan foods makes living a vegan lifestyle not just easy, but exciting. We've listened to every piece of feedback and we're committed to continuously improving your experience.

Big News: Transitioning to an Online-Only Store

I have some big news to share with you today. After much consideration, we’ve decided to transition to an online-only store. I know, I know, this might come as a surprise, and believe me, it was a tough decision. Our beloved physical shop at 43 Haji Lane has been our home for the last 2 years and we have met so many amazing people here, but by subletting it, we’ll free up more cashflow. This means we can offer you even more of what you love – fresh, new, and exciting vegan groceries delivered right to your door!

Why We Made This Decision

This transition wasn’t easy, but it’s essential for our growth. Managing two sets of overheads: online and offline, was a TREMENDOUS challenge. We opened the physical store in Nov 2020 to give you the experience of a dedicated vegan grocery, fulfilling a lifelong dream of making it a reality in Singapore. While we loved 💚  connecting with you in person and sharing our mission, the physical shop diverted resources from our core mission: expanding and improving our product catalog. The costs of running a physical store were substantial, eating into profits that we could have used to enhance our inventory and prices.

When the opportunity arose to sublet our shophouse, we saw immediate benefits. We swiftly found a fair offer to sublet our ground floor, prompting this transition. We’re confident that focusing online will allow us to serve you better.

Why This Will Benefit You

With our focus solely on online operations, you can expect:

  • A Much, Much, Much Wider Selection: More resources mean we can expand our product range, bringing you the latest and most exciting vegan products.
  • Better Prices: Lower overheads allow us to offer even better deals and discounts.
  • Improved Online Experience: We will be dedicating more time to improve and streamline our online store to make your shopping experience effortless and enjoyable.

With more resources freed up, and our energy focused on sourcing and expanding our catalog, we will be able to improve our vegan offerings to you so you can have the latest, exotic vegan groceries to make your vegan life, even more exciting. Going vegan doesn’t have to be difficult. We believe that veganism is ultimately a celebration of abundance – an abundance of human spirit and an abundance of food choices too!

Mark Your Calendars: Special Events from June 20th Onwards!

To celebrate this transition, we’re hosting two special events:

Focusing solely online allows us to streamline our operations and offer even more vegan goodness to you.
