Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Well here we are at the end of another year, I don’t know about you all but frankly I have no idea what the hell happened as one minute it was January and all of a sudden Carol was asking me when I was going to finish for the holiday period (as she has finished teaching). Needless to say it didn’t go down well when I informed her that I wasn’t sure as we had all sorts of customers to see and orders to deliver, ah well at least the ear ache I received didn’t last too long once she got onto the subject of her Christmas present/s – I don’t think she was all that interested in a new cd player strangely enough but you can’t blame me for trying.
Gavin and I wish you a very relaxing holiday and a prosperous 2015, I think it is fair that for the most part 2014 turned out to be a good year for most of us all but as always our thoughts turn to the people of the world who are not so fortunate, lets hope that 2015 is an improvement on their quality of life and tolerance of our differences is the norm.
Many of you will be aware that I became a granddad for the first time this year and I would like to thank you all for your kind (and not so kind) messages in this regard. I am sure you will reap the benefits of your kindness.
It will be business as usual come next year and looking forward to organizing our annual Reading Show, dates yet to be announced as we are trying to ensure we don’t clash with other events and things going on at base camp. As soon as we have an inkling we will let you all know.
This year we saw a gradual improvement in business overall but we noticed a decline in some brands becoming less resilient in the marketplace, thankfully none of the manufacturers we support drop into this category but it has made us realize just how important it is to be careful to select products to sell and take in part exchange items. I can only apologize if we have not offered to take in items you wished to trade in against new items, I can only advise to check out used prices of items you are purchasing to ensure a reasonable chance of this not happening.
The final apology of the year has to be those (many, many) customers who had to suffer at the gut wrenching humor dished out by Gavin during the last 12 months, I can only dip my head in shame and for Christmas this year I will be giving him an allowance for a joke book to put this unfortunate episode behind us.
Thank you all for your patronage this year and have a great Christmas & New Year, see you in 2015.
