What a year it has been

This week marks the anniversary of New Zealand's first nationwide lockdown due to the global Covid-19 pandemic. It has really been a year like no other, one that has brought us all many challenges but also pride in how we have come together as a nation. For us at Redcurrent, it was always going to be a big year but no one foresaw quite how immense it would be.

Before the pandemic hit we were gearing up to make some big changes to the well-known Redcurrent offering, we had noticed our customers' needs were changing and realised that we needed to shift with them. So 2020 was going to be the year that we expanded our product offering, introducing our new bed linen, baby, home fragrance and other lifestyle collections. We were looking forward to an exciting year ahead.

Heading into uncharted waters

Then Covid-19 hit…. Virtually overnight our new suppliers stopped working, ships and planes grounded, our stores were closed and we scrambled, along with the rest of the retail industry, to make sense of it all. This meant that we had to adapt to each new obstacle that came our way, accepting that things just weren’t going to go as planned for a long while. We weren’t able to fully launch our new collections, taking the small wins when something did arrive, which has meant that our range has been missing some great product.

While our valued suppliers are still working to get 100% back up to speed, we’re excited that the amazing product that our team has working so hard on will be arriving over the next few months. We’re continuing on the journey that started over a year ago, we hope you come with us.


Thank you for your support, it means a lot.

Rebecca and Audrey
