Any word on what is happening to Parkers - that most longstanding of UK retailers?

Website down or something more permanent?

That's it, they are now closed. Remaining stock is being sold on e-bay.

They tried moving to larger premises but couldn't keep pace. CRC are miles ahead with their free returns service. But Parkers were okay in the pre-internet mail order days.

Please post such things in the chat forum and add UK for instance. This is an international forum. I, and a lot of others on here don't even know what Parkers is.

Thanks,

Frankie

I don't even know if WW is the right forum for questions like these.

Thanks,
