A deep, heartfelt "Thank you" to everyone who has supported us this year. It's been a year of some might big ups and some quite scary downs, but by the Grace of God, we got there!
Have a Happy, Holy, Peaceful Christmas.
We will remember you and your intentions at Mass on Christmas Morning.
from all at CWA.
Now that Summer's over, Autumn allows the CWA Team to take some time to get our heads together and look back at what has worked and what didn't during our Summer Trading Period. After this, we take our findings and then see how we can use them to make your favourite Catholic T-shirt store even better! (See how we managed to avoid any mention of Christmas Shopping there?)
This year has probably been our most ambitious year yet, that has seen 3 additional CWA stores open to cater to Catholic shoppers living in the Euro-zone, the USA, and, Canada too. In tandem with this, we absorbed the Design-your-Own sites operated under the Sacristy Clothing brand into the CWA set up, and with shopper feedback and sales figures indicating that we got things right on every count. (Phew!)
Never ones to rest on our laurels, we've now put in place a development plan to further improve the over-all shopping experience for people using Catholics With Attitude, and, We have a hunch that you'll like it!
In the USA and Canada, we have decided to change our main Ladies T-shirt supplier with immediate effect. Work is now underway to bring our North American shoppers an enhanced selection of Ladies Tees as we introduce 2 different styles of shirt to our stock. Look out for more details and re-launch dates being posted here soon.
In the UK, we will be opening a second (yes, "second") online Catholic Clothing store! We can't say too much about it at the moment, but suffice to say it will feature some of our own in-house creations, along with the Cream of Christian / Catholic designs from sources all over Europe.

Following on from the successful roll out of new CWA Stores for Continental Europe and the USA,
Catholics With Attitude have now added another store to their folio with the opening of Catholics With Attitude: Canada.
The new Canadian store uses the business model of it's sister operation in the USA, giving shoppers the opportunity to either buy direct form pre-designed stock or alternatively create and customize through an easy to use design tool.
Our new store can be visited by logging on to www.catholicwithattitude.com
It probably hasn't escaped your notice that there have been more than a few changes at CWA over the past few months. There's been a lot going on and it's all to do with a 3 Phase plan that we set in place towards the end of Summer last year. This has involved a lot of time, research and an element of risk taking, and, we're delighted to say that it's now all falling into place rather nicely.
Phase 1 began in March 2012 and saw CWA enlarge its operations with the launch of 2 new online stores serving the USA and Europe. April then saw Phase 2 swing in to action with the merger and re-brand of our sister company Sacristy Clothing into the newly set up Catholics With Attitude designer stores - a process which should be fully completed within the next few weeks.
The final Phase of our expansion kicked off on the 1st of May and brings a fourth Catholics With Attitude online store into the existing set up. This new store will focus on Catholics living in Canada and is set to launch before the end of this month - just in time for the Summer rush!
Customer feedback and market reaction for Phases 1 and 2 has been extremely positive, with like-for-like trading between January and May 2012 already exceeding that for 2011 by a huge 25%.
We've said it before, and, we'll say it again.
"Keep an eye on us - we're going places".
Regular shoppers and followers of our Social Network updates will already be familiar with our oft quoted line "His and Hers in stock".Well, thanks to some smart work by our Development Team, we are pleased to unveil our new "His and Hers Shirt".
These were piloted on Monday last week at our create your own store and thanks go to Brian and Janet who uploaded their own artwork, created a "His and Hers" shirt and sent us a snap of them wearing it together yesterday on their hotel balcony in Lourdes.
We're working on multi-user applications for this, so if your HCPT / YSVP / KofC / School / Dicastry or other group has uniform needs, then, get in touch with us.
One of the tasks we had set ourselves for this year was to try and do more to remember the sacrifice that Jesus paid on Good Friday, and, to see how our business day could possibly fit in to the Church's practices on that very special day.
We have decided that Catholics With Attitude's operations will be suspended on Good Friday, with the effect that it will be impossible to make a purchase from us during that period. This being the case, we are also asking all visitors to the site to donate the money they intended to spend in the store to worthwhile Catholic Charities.
The Home Page will have a few links to Charities whose work we admire and we will be inviting you to donate to them, or of course, any cause close to your own Heart.
