End of an era
Kia ora e te whanau,
After eight years making and sharing bread with you, we are turning off our ovens and closing down on the 24th December.
Our final order deadline will be Sunday 18th December, for delivery the week before Christmas. We strongly encourage you to order sooner rather than later though, to ensure you get all of your favourite treats. A heads up - there is limited Better Butter supply!
We’ll be offering 10% off our bread and naked mixes and 20% off our boxed mixes until we close. The discount will be applied automatically to your cart and at checkout.
Why are we closing? There is no one single reason, but the accumulation of small reasons. Covid has had a part to play for sure. So too have changes in my personal life including a change in life direction, and injuries I need time and energy to recover from. Most recently, I sustained a concussion in late May which I am still experiencing the effects of and am slowly recovering from.
We hope you understand that this isn’t entirely sad news. I like to do things on my own terms and Midnight has been no exception. So I’m closing on my own terms too, and it doesn’t feel so sad. There is so much to be grateful for. The friendships, camaraderie, and fun. The amazing people and establishments we got to work with. The best of the best.
The end of one thing creates space for something else. For my team and I, this creates room for new opportunities to thrive.
There aren’t enough words or time to describe how grateful I am to you, our community. It is no exaggeration to say that none of this would have been possible without your support and belief in us. You helped us grow and turn Midnight Baker into a fully realised dream.
I have a LOT of thank yous which I can’t fit in this post. However I must thank my team - Harkirat, Alice, Anshul, (and Keria too!) I would have been lost without them this year. They’ve held the fort so very well while I’ve been recovering.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for everything these past eight years. I will be forever grateful. Arohanui - big love to you all.
