If you’re looking for new and innovative products on the cheap to enhance your summer or kit out your new student pad, keep reading!
A brand discovery platform for innovative, independent stores with great promotions. This is the idea that three Bristol-based students pitched to ‘Webstart Bristol’, a technology business incubator that accepted the idea and has been funding its growth. No longer just a concept, it is a now a fully functioning business called Huskr. Imagine a cool and edgy cross between Groupon and Not On The High Street, that’s Huskr!
The way it works is pretty simple, explore the curated deals and once you’ve found a product that you like just share the deal on whichever social network you’ve signed up with, and after that… it’s all yours. You will be sent the promo code and link to the store so that your purchase is just a few clicks away.
Whether you’re looking to kit out your wardrobe with exciting new gear, your larder with luxury foods, a bike to get you to uni and back affordably and in style, or a stack of magazines and art to decorate your living room, Huskr will deliver. Recent deals have included 15-40% offclothing brands, discounts on fixed gear bikes, free independent magazines, exclusive prices on wooden sunglasses, and money off funky confectionery.
As Huskr is run and founded by students it’s the perfect place for fellow students to find brands and items that will actually excite and engage you. All the brands on Huskr have been carefully handpicked by the team so as to not dilute the quality of the site’s product range. There is also a section where visitors to the site are encouraged to suggest independent brands that could be hosted on Huskr, to make the site a platform for brand democracy.
Huskr not only helps students and young people with an interest in edgy products, it also helps support the growth of independent stores. All the stores that sign up create their own pages much like a social network profile, where you can gain information on their brand and the other products they sell. You know exactly what you’re getting with in depth descriptions of the products and links to the sites where the products are sold.
If you’re a student looking for new and exciting brands that won’t break the bank this summer, take a peek.
