    The relocation has also presented us with the opportunity to repurpose our existing Ashmore premises. We are thrilled to re-establish an inspiring trade showroom that will open on 15 September, giving local designers exclusive access to our collections on the Gold Coast again. 

    We are also opening a clearance outlet to the general public from 23 September, where end-of-line and floor stock will be available for purchase. We are offering our trade clients, exclusive access to the clearance outlet for one week, before opening to the public. This is an exciting opportunity that will enable us to move on end of line ranges allowing us to further expand our current range of in demand collections.
