We were born in 2007, by the hands of Nish and Sach Kukadia. We were the first private online shopping club launched in the UK. Made to share the most desirable brands, at the most desirable prices, at any time of the year. However, that was a time when online shopping was barely trusted. Companies in the UK were not keen on venturing into this “new-age way” of doing business with a 5-staff start-up from a basement service room in Brent. It was tough.
But the brothers didn’t give up on us and dared overseas. After closing our first deal in Italy, labels such as Chloé, Boss and Diesel went on sale on our website. Soon enough Furla, Adidas and others followed, giving us the boost to shape a new generation of retail industry.
Within three years, we grew to a team over 100 people, selecting and handling around 5000 products every day. Since then, we have partnered with 1600 brands across the world. Luxury, fashion, beauty, accessories, footwear, homeware and electronics. All to give our members not only greater deals but greater variety. In 2013, we became part of the London Stock Exchange Elite group and acknowledged by the government as one of UK’s brightest digital businesses. We have been among the best, every year since then. And each year we feel more passionate.
Today, we live in Notting Hill, known as the largest flash sale website in the UK. But that doesn’t matter much to us. What matters is this rush of finding brilliant designer deals, and share the feeling with everyone, every time.
