What effect is COVID-19 having on our business?
As we are already a well established internet based mail order business, the effects of Covid-19 have been quite limited.
We are still despatching orders, as usual.
While Royal Mail and other Carriers continue to operate, this will remain the case.
Importation & Supply Chain
Affects on our supply chain:
Stanley Gibbons and Davo products, plus some Showgard items.
Stanley Gibbons fulfilment house, Benhams, is closed due to Covid/illness.
Expected to re-open Tuesday, next week, 1st February.
Though there may be longer lead times than usual while they catch up with back orders.
Stock of Showgard mounts have finally arrived and should become available at the same time.
Updated 27th January.
As for our European supply chain:
Lighthouse are operating as near normal as possible, but have lost a lot of man hours on the production side.
However, as this has been going on for many months now, it has resulted in major shortages of 'core' products.
If you need anything within the normal time scale please enquire first and we can advise if available.
Some out of stock items have lead times of 2 months!!.
You can order with confidence, knowing that we will despatch your order within or very close to the timescale stated on our web pages.
We have taken all reasonable steps to remain safe and well, as per HM Government guidelines.
We hope that you too remain in good health and safe at this time.
