Ministry of Shave - Mens Shaving Brand & Online Store
Ministry off Shave was created late in 2014 to provide all men with a better quality shave. MoS was launched in December 2016 via our online store only.
MoS in itself is the name of the store along with the name of our brand. Our brand and full MoS product range was created in Adelaide, with all of the shaving products being manufactured locally in Adelaide by a toll manufacturer. We created both the brand and the products over almost 2 years to make it what it is today.
Our other business interests have taken over so we no longer have the time to fully dedicate to the online store's marketing and promotion along with the day to day running. We know when we get people to our store that our conversion rates are well above average and that our sales at local and interstate markets show that we have not only a great concept but a great product.
Currently our method of operation is home based, with orders being picked and packed from our home in the Adelaide Hills. Included in the sale in a large inventory of made products, packaging, unused packaging for follow up manufacturing and some IT equipment necessary to run the business/ brand from home.
We have a solid customer base and often repeat customers looking to replenish their original order, with an extensive Mailchimp mail list.
On top of our own MoS products, we also sell the range of Rockwell Razors from Canada. These have been a great add on product which complement the MoS products well and has increased our average order value greatly. We have a solid working relationship with Rockwell and the ability to sell and stock their products is included in the sale price. Note though that the Rockwell Razor SOH isn't included in the sale price and this will be added to the final sale price if you wish to carry on selling these.
