Welcome to the December 2021 edition of the Skyzack newsletter. With the Christmas and festive season fast approaching, we thought it would be a good time to give you an update on what our team and some local businesses around us have been up to.
Happy Christmas from Skyzack
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very lovely Holiday Season and to say thank you for supporting us throughout the years.
2021 has been a fun one; with the expanding of our team, the highs and lows of remote to office working (then back again…) and many laughs. We can’t wait to continue our journey next year, with you coming along for the ride.
Our talented team member Tuesday has created a lovely design for this year’s Christmas cards, showcasing some of the best areas of Macclesfield, alongside her illustrative skills.
Keep an eye on your letterboxes, as some of you will be receiving one of these cards from us this year! If you’re looking for a new design yourself, whether that be business cards, a new logo or anything else, we’d love to help so please get in touch. Also, make sure to let us know what is your favourite part about the design!
This festive period, our hub will be closed from Wednesday 22nd until Monday 3rd January. You can still get in touch via email during this time and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. We’re looking forward to a well-earned break and starting the New Year with you!
Skyzack Spotlight: Proper Sound
This month we did a spotlight on the proper good, Proper Sound.
Proper Sound are a newly opened record, art and apparel store in Macclesfield. They serve some dangerously moreish ‘Proper Cookies’, coffees and food, as well as having a cocktail menu on offer which has some fabulously punny titles (‘Return of the Macc’ being our favourite!). If you have any music loving friends or family who need an extra present this year, make sure to head over and give their records and music-based merchandise a browse.
Shopping small this Christmas with local businesses
On the Christmas topic once again… have you got all your presents?
If you’re having a late present panic, breathe! There’s plenty of places with the perfect gifts you need for your loved ones, and you can support a small business whilst you’re at it, bonus!
Some of our favourites are…
Mootiful Gifts have unique homeware, a majority of which is made in house. With cards, decorations, glasses, frames and more, there’s something for everyone. They also stock some great brands, such as Sass and Belle and Red Cuckoo London.
Monocle Deli is a cosy café, art gallery and small business focused shop, owned by a multitalented team. They stock a fantastic variety of gifts, jewellery, prints and more, with their current collection being available until the end of the month. So get in there whilst you can!
