We’re thrilled to keep adding ‘new at BRIKA’-style updates because this invariably means that we continue to have good news to share! As previously mentioned, we kicked off 2016 with an exciting office expansion, of which the finishing touches on our interior design are complete. We love our newly BRIKA-fied space, replete with the gorgeous handmade goods by our Makers that are the very fabric by which we stand for. It only makes sense that we have tools to complement the skills of the exceptional BRIKA team members, without which we would not be the well-oiled machine that continues to fuel our growth. Enter the HP Pro Slate 8, which has been indispensable in ensuring the day-to-day operations of both our shop floor and office remain seamless. On the former front, it has been useful when it comes to efficiently ringing through customer purchases with its built-in POS functionality. With regards to our office space, our favorite tablet feature comes in handy the most during meetings, as it digitizes handwritten notes taken on the tablet using the HP Duet Pen. Whether it be creative brainstorms or meeting minutes, this feature has been a valuable resource in ensuring notes get shared quickly with the entire team. (Its high-res camera has also been great for snapping and sharing photos of our new space.) More in the realm of buzzworthy news, we’re excited to announce 768 Queen Street East in Toronto as the new home of our second standalone shop. Leslieville neighborhood, we’re comin’ for ya! Be sure to keep up on our Instagram and Twitter to be the first to know about the shop’s launch.
