Power failure in Victoria
Our sincere apologies to people who have been trying to telephone our London shop today. An area of Victoria experienced a failure of electrical power for much of the day. This resulted in our telephone and computer systems not working and the majority of the shop without lighting.
Customers visiting the shop were very understanding of the situation and we thank them for their patience. The shop staff showed themselves to be incredibly adaptable. Thanks to their ingenuity and resilience, they were able to serve those customers who ventured into the upper part of the shop.
It appears that the problem was caused by workmen in the area cutting through a mains cable. Power has now been restored and it will be business as usual tomorrow.
