This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
Discover the fascinating stories behind how your favourite subscriptions originally came to be, the marvellous people involved in lovingly creating and curating each box, plus a few ‘behind the scenes’ snaps.
The Retro | Meet The Maker
It’s that time of the week again! This week we sit down with Peter Donoghue of monthly retro subscription box, The Retro, offering a variety of boxes spanning vinyl, cassettes, comics and gaming from the 70’s, 80s and 90s. Based up in Glasgow, Scotland, The Retro delivers a monthly box of nostalgia, enabling you to easily relive the classics of years gone by! Every box is handpicked based on your preferences and accompanied by a handwritten note explaining why The Retro team believe you’ll love it. Now, where did we leave our office Megadrive?
