It's officially open SuperCool fans! We have finally launched our very first flagship shop - TheSuperCool Fitzroy Emporium. We've still got a few bits and pieces to do so its a soft launch for now... but we're rapt to be open and sharing our very special shop with you all. We fell in love with this heritage listed building when we saw it... the arch, the exposed brick, the polished concrete, the windows letting the sunlight in... amazing. We were lucky to negotiate a great deal with our extremely supportive landlords who are really invested in seeing us succeed! We have to thank our great builders; Twelve Nails for their patience and quick turnaround... our family for helping paint, clean, screw in, lacquer, sand and move stock and furniture... and our SuperCool staff for their patience and support as we put this togethor. And to our SuperCool ambassador Lola for being patient and playing, sleeping and generally giving us good luck as we built and merchandised the shop. Stay tuned as we unveil some exciting new plans for the back rooms of the shop including some great pop up's and a cafe! It's onwards and upwards for us!

We're pretty excited to show you our pictures shot by the amazing and talented Thom Rigney (Thom did our time lapse video of our pop up last year at Westfield Doncaster as well!)  We love the fact it looks like a mini emporium in the middle of the shopping centre!

We owe a big thanks to the talented architects and designers Daryl and Adrian from Meta4 Designs who took on our brief and own design ideas and made it a polished, finished piece of art with great storage. They had a few challenges to work with with height restrictions of 1.4m and security lock up requirements so we are very grateful for their ideas and persistance.

And of course to the team behind Thinkers Makers Society (Adam and Matt in particular) who lovingly hand crafted the whole shop in their warehouse and then erected it instore over 3 nights. Their attention to detail and the beautiful joinery has made it a pleasure to work in and we know our customers love it by all the touching and feeling of the vintage book counter, the external reclaimed timber walls and the beautiful wood joinery on the inside.

We'd also like to thank Ink on Paper for our awesome lightbox, signage, foundation plaque, waterfall unit and Twelve Nails for the great shelving table.

If you haven't had a chance to check it out, we urge you to pop by and visit.

We're open 7 days a week (same hours as Westfield) Mon - Wed: 9am - 5:30pm Thur - Fri: 9am - 9pm Sat: 9am - 6pm Sun: 10am - 5pm

We're located on the Ground Floor below the Apple Store (in the aisle on the way to Target) opposite the blue car park entrance.
