Very sadly we have had to close our St Andrews shop due to the rising costs associated with running in that particular location. As most of our Scottish customers will know the rates in the town are extremely high, too high as it turns out to qualify us for the new small-business rates relief scheme. This coupled with a badly timed rent increase demand from Fife Council has meant we cannot afford to continue to operate from these council-owned premises. This is particularly unfortunate as customer numbers and enthusiasm were just as good as ever. We all have a lot of nice memories of working in the town for the four years we were there, and would like to thank the many customers who visited us and enjoyed the shop during that time. The office of course has also moved - details of new address on the site help section.
