It is Time for us to Retire

We have BIG news to share after some pondering over the past few months. We have decided that it is time for us to retire. This is not sad news. It is a deliberate decision and carefully thought through.  NØRDIK started as a passion project and we have truly enjoyed pouring our hearts and souls into making NØRDIK successful. In the past 5 years we have managed to keep going and stay afloat despite everything that has been thrown at us, including the difficult years of COVID, economic slowdown etc. 


At the same time we have struggled with multiple health challenges but have kept going 24/7. After intense decades or our previous careers. including internationa; aid work in natural disasters and conflict zones around the world our bodies are starting to show lots or wear & tear. we have come to the point that we must focus on making our health a priority. Running a smal-business is not a 9 - 5 job - it is a 24/7 job making it difficult to care for ourselves!


In the coming months we will start the transition co retiring ourselves from the business. As we work on the transition, NØRDIK is available for sale but if the right buyer is not found we are also prepared to close NØRDIK permanently and end our incredible journey with an "honorable discharge" (Scott, our co-owner is a retired army veteran)!


We will get the new journey started with an amazing "retirement sale" to reduce our current inventory, offering it to you at 40% off (some items up to 70% off) and free shipping. The discount will be applied automatically at the check-out. As you know the margins on these types of items is 50% so this is a very generous offer and you cannot find a better deal than this for authentic Nordic design that brings happiness and joy! With free shipping when the cost of shipping is typically 10 - 25% of the order value, this is truly your gain and our loss. Spread the word, please!!


Our goal is to exit from the business by the end of the year. We are forever thankful for all of you who have supported us in the past 5 vears: our amazing staff, our customers, and our cheerleaders! Again, this is not a sad occasion but rather a happy one as it leads us onto another chapter in our lives: retirement!


You will stil receive updates from us from time to time until NØRDIK is either sold or closed. We count on your support to help us get our remaining inventory sold!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Annika & Scott, owners of  NØRDIK
