Here is what the owner Frank had to say about the store and New Zealand...

"Qubic, which opened on 7/07/07, is our national flagship store, and we decided to set it up to start to expose the local NZ scene to what's going on in a global sense. To us, I think it's more than just a retail space it's a design hub, a gathering place, and home to sneaker and streetwear aficionados from all over the country. We also run a NZ sneaker/streetwear forum which is updated with news from us and our family all over the world...

"It's easy to keep up to date with what's happening by looking at blogs, news sites, forums but I think to see the actual product in front of you is another experience. In a way we're showcasing the work of others from all over the world in an effort to rejuvenate and re-energize the local design, streetwear, and sneaker scenes...

We then molded our love for art into the space as well, and created a permanent gallery installation inside the store, which changes every 3-4 weeks with new shows featuring local and international artists. I also run small sneaker customization classes in store and we distribute Angelus Leather paints!

"Republic has become our store's creative arm, and we use it to embark on the collaboration and design projects we are currently undergoing with a few of the brands we represent in store. We also work with some other great artists and designers and creating the line is always a bunch of fun and laughs. Republic itself releases 2-3 collections (aside from collaboration projects) a year, with varying themes and concepts... just whatever inspires us at the time I guess!"
