All good things must come to an end, for now I say Goodbye
After more than 10 years in business Secrets Ireland is closing it’s doors. However, it is not a sad tale. I have been very fortunate to be selling my wonderful little company. I know a good thing when I see it and while Secrets Ireland is a business that I love very much, I also know when it is time to let go.
I will be closing as Secrets Ireland on Sunday 11th October 2015 (before Downton Abbey is on, cos we know I’m not missing that) and the new owners will be taking over and rebranding. So in the mean time, there will be epic bargains of some amazing stock that I am selling off.
Secrets Ireland has been the most enjoyable business that I could have ever wished for and just buckets of fun to run. I have met some of the most wonderful people and also had the most enormous pleasure telling people what I do for a living. Secrets Ireland has also opened my eyes and educated me to so many areas surrounding sexual health and habits and, I believe, that it has made me a better person in so many ways.
Finally, I want to thank you. Thank you to my loyal customers, my one off visitors, the people who pushed me, educated me, supported me and challenged me. Thank you to my wonderful suppliers and the thousands of amazing people I have met over the years. This has been a hugely enjoyable, some times exhausting and undoubtedly wonderful journey, which would have been nothing without the amazing range of characters, friends and colleagues that I have known along the way.
“What about you Avril?” I hear you cry, “What will you do now?” I was thinking of magician, fighter pilot or maybe a fairy, who knows? All I know so far is, I will be hanging up my lingerie for a little while and finding something a little more comfortable to slip into.
