Cube Nation is an online cube store in Bangladesh. We started our journey in August 2016. We thought of opening this shop for the betterment of the Bangladesh cubing community. The number of cubers is increasing day by day in Bangladesh. But the facility isn’t increasing. So this shop will be dedicated to making a better environment for cubers.
We will provide every type of WCA approved puzzles and many non-WCA puzzles, top quality stickers, lube, and other cubing accessories. Currently, our team consists of two people. We have made this website for a better shopping experience. One of our aims is to serve you with better quality service in a cheaper price.
A cute shop started in August 2016, by an agonized Cuber who wanted a cubing related shop, that could give him the necessary specs that he needed at an understandable price. So he started a shop. It started with Zero-Investment(allegedly) by taking pre-orders from the customers. Like most of the startups, it failed miserably on its first attempt. The calculation for the shipment and custom tax was dangerously wrong. He had to bear a loss of 50k and suddenly, he was in a very bad position. He thought of going rogue too. Luckily, his mother was very helpful and gave him 50k and expected him to quit the shop once he clears his dues to his customers. He tried again and again until he finally understood the import regulations, consulted with a few people, and got connected to customs. Then he dealt with his suppliers in China to get the cubes, created a website(with the help of a friend), made visiting cards, purchased shipping materials, and other related stuff. Everything was set. An anonymous philosopher once said, “Just Name it!”
So we had to name our venture. We searched for good names for days. Yet, we couldn’t find any that would suit us. Out of the blue, one of our cuber friends, Sreshtho, on August 27th, 2016, voiced the word “CubeNation”.
Over time, Cubenation became very popular. We will cease to provide the top-notch service we used to give and would try to improve even beyond that every day. Happy cubing! [Oh yes, just in case you are thinking, he returned the 50k to his mom pretty quickly after that.]
