... but certainly not going away
North Shore Bridge Club member - and Bridge Shop owner, Nick Fahrer - has decided to move the business exclusively online and mail and phone order from July 2022.
There are very good reasons.
The last few years have proven to Nick that his customers are now mainly shopping online or over the phone for their bridge gear. And it's not just the last two years that he has seen this shift. The Bridge Shop is simply following the international trend of rapid growth in e-commerce. People are more and more tech-savvy and online shopping is safer and more user friendly than before.
It is easy to buy bridge equipment from The Bridge Shop online or over the phone. Nick has seen less foot traffic through the door even though the business is as busy as ever - a phenomenon that many successful shops are experiencing.
A new door opens
In July, The Bridge Shop will move to an office in a business park in Lane Cove and service all customers via online, phone and mail order business only. After 48 years of having a store front on Sydney's north shore, Nick says now is the right time to make this move. He is confident that he's built the biggest and best bridge merchandise website in the world – shopping on The Bridge Shop site is as easy as taking a finesse.
Sad as that may sound, it certainly doesn’t deter from a bright future and a continued great service commitment to all existing and future Bridge Shop customers.
Nick will be just a click or a phone call away. Anytime you need any help with your order, he’ll still be at his desk offering the best advice he can give you.
