Happy New Year!

Wow! What a year it's been. As the booze chills in the fridge and we count down the hours to the New Year fireworks, I was reflecting on my personal highlights for Sneaking Duck this year:

  • We celebrated our first birthday
  • We hired and worked with* awesome people: Natalie, Chung, Madeleine, Parris, Jessica & Joel will be with us in 2013. Laura, Helen, Lora, Suami & Christella worked on a casual or temporary basis in 2012
  • We were flattered to win awards - BRW Retailer awards, ORIAs and a ClearMark award
  • We've growing rapidly, every quarter
  • We continued to improve our customer service with Try At Home frames
  • We improved our product with numerous lauches - my favourites were Vintage and of course Sunglasses

And next year promises even more - with new and exciting frames, an ever improving customer offering and more. I literally can't wait.

Many of you have helped us with what we have achieved, and for this we are enormously appreciative. From advice to referring friends to technical assistance. Thank you all so much.

We'd like to wish you all the very best for 2013,
Mark, Michael, Mike and Jodie.
