On a high street saturated with the same brands, contemporary indie Goodstead isn’t afraid to go against the grain.
“We have an authentic voice. We take in brands we believe in and go in a direction we feel is right, rather than just follow trends,” says co-owner Graham Blakey.
In 2012, Goodstead worked with marketing companies to build its profile, and finished the year with stellar sales. Blakey says he and partner Ian Craigie will continue to invest this year: “We’re looking to move our website operations to a bigger venue where we can further streamline our working practices.”
