This is an important announcement!
The entire Tokyo Rebel team will be in Japan from June 4-14, doing personal stuff and also visiting our brands. We will be able to bring you some new store tours so you can see how our brands show off their wares in their home country (this is a rare treat, as Japanese brand stores do not normally allow photos), and we might even bring some cool stuff back with us. We'll also have some fun videos to show you starting about mid-week next week - stay tuned for that! You'll definitely want to check often once we hit Tokyo and Osaka.
Consequently, our store will be CLOSED on those dates (plus the regular Monday closure - unless we feel like opening a day early!). Our physical store's doors will be closed and locked. Our web site will accept orders but will not be updated (except the blog) and those orders will ship after the 15th. Please plan your trips or web orders accordingly! If there is something on our site that you want during that time, it still makes sense to order it to make sure you don't miss your chance (somebody else could order it if you don't).
And just in case anyone gets any funny ideas, our store will be mostly empty during this time, with the merchandise stored at an undisclosed, secure location. So do not be alarmed if you do happen to walk by and see that it looks like we've been pretty well cleaned out. It's a security measure while the store is left unattended. (Our electronic security and surveillance system will still be in operation regardless.) We will have a window display and that's pretty much it.
We will ensure that all orders in our system with confirmed payment by June 2 will be sent out before the closure. Please have your orders in by that date if you don't want to wait until the 14th. We'll also try to have a bunch of new stuff for you to look at up on the site before then.
As we get closer to the date, we will post persistent notices on our web site.
We're excited to visit some of the friends we've made in the industry over the past year, and we hope that we can post some cool stuff to the blog while we're there. Hopefully some surprises too!
