YTC Redcar Contact - Natasha Store closing down mid January but I added TV anyway as thought this could be collected with Beales at Redcar when it closes. Frying Pans where in range at the moment but she's going to merchandise them around the TV later today.
Hobbycraft Silverlink near Newcastle Stand very low on stock, only had 6 Cupcake Corers 4 Crafty Cutters 8 Pastry Mat in stock No Cooking Liners at all.
YTC Cramlington Supervisor - Tricia TV was off. Reloaded video on TV as it was very jumpy but all running fine now. Plenty of stock
Collectibles Garden Walk Store Contact - Kerry Ann Picture says it all!
Collectibles Galleria Store Manager - Sarah Group Buyer - Lynn Spoke to Lynn, the Galleria store is actually closing down so that's the main reason behind us loosing the stand. They have condensed two stands onto one and is looking messy but Lyn asked me to leave the products as they are today and revisit when possible and speak to Sarah when she's in to uplift what shouldn't be there, she just didn't want the stand damaging that was in warehouse. Lynn said to give her a call third week of January to arrange a meeting to show her through new products etc.
