Showroom Closure Print

It is with great sadness we announce the permanent closure of our electrical appliance showroom from 29th January 2021.

As a family business we have had to re-evaluate our operations in response to a number of events and have taken the decision to withdraw from the activity of Appliance Sales and Service and fitted kitchens in order to focus on our electrical contracting operations.

There are several reasons for this decision but principle among them has been the loss last year of my partner, Linda, at age 57. This was a sudden loss and unexpected.

Personally, I have been connected with the retail shop since moving in above it aged just 3; it has been a huge part of my life for the past 50+ years but regrettably I am unable to rise to the challenges ahead.

We would all like to thank our local customers for their support over many decades; it has been our pleasure to be a part of the local community and to be a part of the Gloucester Road landscape since 1946 originally.

We would impress that Horders the business is not closing down or going out of business. Our team of electricians and staff are being retained and we have been able to offer transfers to all those staff who wanted them; so, in every other way for our electrical maintenance and installation activities it is business as usual, and we can be contacted through our usual telephone numbers or email address.
