On the afternoon of the 8th of September 2014 (7 Years ago today), the notification popped up that I had a new mail. Write GEAR had received our first ever order. It was unbelievable! Jesse and I almost fell off our chairs (our chairs at our other jobs). We had hoped that there were some other fountain pen nerds out there in South Africa, but had no idea if an online Fountain Pen Shop would actually work in SA. We had no idea if the Fountain Pen Community in SA would even be able to find us. But on that Monday the first order came through. It was official. We were a shop. We were a specialist, enthusiast centric pen shop!
Seven great years it has been with great support from the fountain pen community in SA. Through stock issues, staff changes, the move from Durban to Cape Town, COVID lockdowns and more you have supported us. Thank you. Your support has enabled us to grow, to increase the number of products we stock, to expand into new brands and even have a full walk in store at our offices in Cape Town. Which, by the way, you should pop in, grab a coffee and say hi when you are next in CT.
This year to celebrate 7 years of the Write GEAR store being opened we are having 7 specials over 7 days to celebrate our 7th Birthday. The first special can been seen below. The second special will drop at 8am tomorrow, the next the following day at 8am and so on over 7 days. These specials will only last for the day and are while stocks last.
