For 2 1/2 years, On The Fly has operated under-the-radar out of a 4,000 square foot warehouse in the SOMA district of San Francisco. The space is an homage to testosterone: it’s an old machinist shop with a 40-foot ceiling, two giant overhead cranes capable of moving naval ship engines, a fully-stocked bar, taxidermy that includes a giant stuffed Kodiak bear and a walrus head (both real), 6 flat screen TV’s suspended from the ceiling, dark, hardwood furniture, leather chairs, a ping-pong table, thousands of luxury products for men ranging from dress slacks to razor sets to cigar lighters, and a bathroom that no woman should ever have to use.
And yet, it’s time to move on to a new stage for the business, and that involves our first retail store! The fact of the matter is, we have too much nice stuff hiding out in an alley that is not easily accessible to the men & women that appreciate our assortment. Rather than make them come to us, we’re moving closer to them. The details will be kept under wraps until we’re ready to roll it out, but it should be open in time for the holidays.
In the meantime, from now until Sunday night at midnight (9/7/08), we’re offering 25% off any order over $100 by using the promotion code GOODLUCKMOVING at checkout. Free shipping still applies as always.
Help us lighten our load, and we’ll thank you for the sentiment.
