Old Faces, New Faces, Sad Faces and Some Mags.

11 Aug 2017

So, some of you may not be aware but we only have one full week left with our lovely Hannah.

Han as made the (very grown up) decision to move home to Hawkes Bay to save up cash money over the summer to fund her travels from 2018 – Infinity. If you know Han, you will know that travel has been a major driving force for her – she wants to see the whole world and she wants to see it now! Its going to be so strange around here without Hannah, she really has the sweetest heart and an energy that fills a room. Good Luck Han! You are a big part of Magnetix, we are sad to see you leave. We are really going to miss you and we will keep everyone posted on which fabulous location you are exploring next year! Hannahs last day will be Tuesday the 22nd of August so please make sure you get in before that to say goodbye – I know that would mean a lot to her!

Filling the Hannah shaped void in the store will be our new Part Timer Georgia (also lovely – say hi if you see her around!) and the return of an old favourite that die-hard regulars are sure to remember. I won’t name names you are gunna have to come in from the 22nd of August to see who it is.
