There are many long standing businesses in our city centre. Some have been here for 10 years, some 20, and some like "U Name It" an incredible 30 years!
Bruce and Fiona are no strangers to the city centre community having owned and operated U Name It in the Piccadilly Arcade since 2012. I chatted with them about their love for the city, why they do what they do, and to help spread the word about a great promotion they have running.... all in celebration of their 10th birthday.
We love celebrating milestones like this. It's no secret that many local businesses have been doing it tough over the last 2-3 years, so when Bruce and Fiona greeted me with their big warm smiles, an obvious passion for what they do, and to hear the machines in the back of the shop busily working on creating the high quality branded clothing and merchandise U Name It are known for, I felt immediately uplifted and encouraged that they are thriving even in the current environment.
I asked Bruce and Fiona what they enjoy the most about their line of work and they replied, "It's the people.... we love serving customers and providing an excellent, bespoke product. It's what we do."
So if you're needing quality clothing, embroidery and printing or branded merchandise like hats, water bottles and much more, I encourage you to head to U Name It and support hard working, passionate locals who will look after you. Find them in the Piccadilly Arcade, in the heart of Tauranga city centre.
