Milligram — stationery & lifestyle store — is now open in a physical incarnation at Melbourne Central.
For the past ten years, our customers have been pleading with us to open up a physical store. Previously known as NoteMaker, we changed our name to Milligram on our tenth birthday in October with a second big announcement to let our customers know we’d be opening up our first store.
We opened our doors for the first time at Shop 212, Level 2 — Lonsdale Building, Melbourne Central on 4 November, 2017. We’ve had thousands of shoppers through the door already — some who have shopped with us before but many who haven’t. It’s been exciting to meet so many new stationery and design lovers in person!
The Milligram stationery & lifestyle accessories store has all your favourites, plus new brands we can’t wait for you to discover.
You’ll find over fifty brands including Milligram Studio, Moleskine, LAMY, Rifle Paper Co., Rhodia, Delfonics, MT Washi Tape, Kaweco, Pilot and MiGoals.
At Milligram, we are dedicated to presenting the world’s best tools for living. We work with established or growing and authentic brands from international and local stationery, bags and lifestyle accessories. Then we bring them to you, our customers, in our virtual and now, physical Australian store.
The stationery and lifestyle products that we range are incredibly tactile and so we want to provide a space for you to have the chance to look, touch and see our range in person. We’ll keep scouring the globe for fantastic stationery and life tools that we are able to share with you online and in our stores.
Our Milligram brand’s tagline sums up our focus: “Stationery. Life”. The brand we’ve also recently announced, our own in-house brand, Milligram Studio, is about creating beautiful and useful objects with ‘measured design’.
We care, and our customers care, about craftsmanship, heritage, performance and impact. This will be a central theme to our Milligram store, providing our customers with an experience and of course honouring our Friends for Life program in store!
Our online store will always be our largest store, but in our Melbourne Central store we will offer an experience, as well as workshops, talks, customisation and writing instrument repairs.
Our talented store designers were Studio Y and the hardworking building crew was MIC Projects. We’ve worked hard together to create a space our customers will love; new customers will want to visit — and is worthy of the brands we carry.
Will there be additional stores?
Yes! We want to really focus on our first store and ensure we’re doing the best for our customers and learning what you want and need.
We are looking to expand into a few key stores and are currently planning to open our next store in 2018. We are still working on the locations but do plan to extend outside Melbourne in the coming years, which our customers are asking for.
For now, we recommend keeping and eye out on our social media channels where we share cheeky sneak peeks on occasion.
