Curate was founded in 2014 with a vision to provide an online shopping experience that showcases a curated selection of goods from everyone’s favourite New Zealand brands and stores. We’re proud to have built a platform that enables discovery – a place for small businesses to reach new customers; filled with content that inspires us to shop locally and thoughtfully.
In this time we’ve connected 15,000 customers with over 100,000 products curated from 250 stores – but to continue would require a level of investment and scale that is not currently viable. We have made the difficult but pragmatic decision to close Curate, effective March 31 2020.
Our journey has been filled with amazing collaborations, customers, small business owners, partners and advisors – It’s with great fondness that we say farewell and thank you for backing us.
