About our founder:
In 2011, while he’s still a 22-year-old student, Adrien Lavoie starts his business from his parent’s basement where he stores the goods for sale: skateboards and longboards.
In 2013, upon completion of his Bachelor’s Degree in Communication degree at the University of Ottawa, he devotes himself to his business full time. It’s also in 2013 that he opens his first store by renting a commercial space in Gatineau, Quebec (Canada). Adrien invests most of his revenues in his online business, building a large inventory. He gradually begins to specialize in the sale of shoes and his sales climb quickly, thanks to exports abroad.
Fast forward to fall 2018, the company is in full expansion and Adrien acquires and moves into an even larger facility in Gatineau. This acquisition allows him to have an ever-increasing inventory and to diversify his offer of brands of shoes. As sales continue to grow, the new warehouse was expanded in the fall of 2020 to make space for even more shoes.
Adrien now runs a successful company. The e-commerce giant eBay recognized him in 2013 as Young Entrepreneur of the Year, in 2016 for his international reach and in 2020 when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame from eBay Canada. Today Wooki has 8 employees, an 11,000 sq2 warehouse and sells its products in nearly 40 countries.
