Retail closed for the next few weeks

Our little retail store in Gowanus (303 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY) will be closed for the next few weeks. Josh, our outstanding retail manager and artist-extraordinaire is busy painting awesome robot murals in our new South Slope (586 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY) location.

The murals are all sketched up and he started applying paint on 4/29! Below is the beginning of our new skyline complete with waterfall! There will also be a subway car, tons of robots, friendly signs and educational robot parts throughout.

Can’t wait to show everyone the new space!!!

p.s. after he is done there, he will move onto the artwork at our newest Atlantic Avenue. So retail hours will be sparse for the next month or so!
