Easter Holidays - Opening Times and Advice for Ordering

  • Easter Backlog

    Blimey Charlie, you lot have been a bit frivolous this weekend, we were expecting a quiet one this morning judging by what we read online as every man and his dog seems to have been out camping this weekend and not rolling around in their drive!

    It's like this. We've come in to work to a right pile of orders, a lot more than we were expecting.

    We've also come in to a massive pile of emails too, more than we were expecting...

    We started a bit earlier than usual and there will be more of us packing trying to clear the back log.

    We'll try and get as much out of the door today as we can on a first come first served basis. Orders in first take priority. If we get this lot clear (unlikely) then we'll print some more off and keep packing for as long as we can, we want as much out of the way as we can the same as you want to receive your stuff but please understand we've got 4 days worth of orders to catch up with and it looks like you've been ordering a bit more on top!

    Same goes for the emails, don't expect a reply 10 minutes after sending an email today! we'll work through them as fast as we can!

    Luckily it looks like our neighbours and some other local businesses have been busy too as we're fully stocked on used boxes! Got some nice big ones too for those flipping wheel arch liners...

  • Easter!

    How do.

    Right, we're done for Easter now.

    Shut Friday (14th April)
    Obviously shut over the weekend.
    Shut Monday (17th April)

    We're back at work Tuesday (18th) morning ready to clear the bank holiday backlog.

    We've tried to get as much stuff listed on the webshop that people are waiting for and also tried to get as many deliveries as we can booked in, we still have a few pallets of stuff to put away after the chaos of the stock take but it's mostly back to normal now.

    The first orders will leave Tuesday hopefully it should start trickling through to customers by Wednesday.

    As you know, we come in on a morning and print all the orders and start packing, if we have time then we'll print more as the day goes by but if the last few weekends orders are anything to go by then orders placed on Monday may not actually leave on Monday, we'll do our best to fulfil orders using the first come first served basis.

  • 2017 Stock Take. Sigh.

    Its April, that means another Brickwerks Birthday (12yrs old now... soon be a teenager!).
    It also means the annual stock take will take place this coming week.
    So, after around 3pm on TUESDAY APRIL 4th no orders will be shipped until Friday 7th April.

    The webshop will still operate and take orders all through stock take - its our hardest working employee :D however no stock will be moved in our out until we've done counting. Everything!
    We won't be making any counter sales or picking any orders for collection after 3PM Tuesday either, so please bear that in mind if you're local.

    There are 5 of us now so whilst we have a load more stock to count and a whole extra building to deal with we aim to have it completed by close of play on Thursday.

    It's only once a year (thank god), and we'd rather not do it if we're honest, but it sets any stock discrepancies right (which is a good thing!) and gives us a year end stock value for the accounts and insurance, so it's necessary.
    We also nearly always find cool stuff that we've forgotten about, so that's another bonus.
