4th November 2003 We no Longer accept American express
American express seem to think they are special. They are not. They account for less than one half of one percent of our credit card turnover, yet they insist on separate accounting from all the other cards and on sending a separate statement each month.
They have now decided to invoice us to the tune of £4.50 for each printed statement. While we can collect our account from their website, the onus is then on us to collect the information monthly and print it out for our accounts. Put simply it is not worth it. Perhaps one day they will see that their arrogance is their loss. Return to More Music
3rd November 2003 Postal strike Ends But delays continu

1st November 2003 Postal Strikes
The Current Wildcat Postal strikes are starting to affect deliveries. Mostly they affect London and the Midlands, but the Post Office will not say which other services are affected or if export mail is being delayed. We are currently right on top of our mail, so Please do not contact us chasing up orders unless your records are more than 2 weeks late! Checking enquiries and responding takes a lot of time and we will get behind if a lot of you email us. Your patience is appreciated in this matter! Return to More Music

8th November 2002 Email Inbox Lost
Last night our email inbox corrupted without warning, there are about 3 weeks of messages we cannot recover, this means that some of you chasing up delayed orders will not recieve replies.
If there is a genuine problem with your order and you have not had a response we are genuinely sorry, we try to respond to all enquiries within 48 hours, however all we can do this time is wait for you to write again. Return to More Music
26th October 2002 Postal Backlog is 6-8 days
It is currently taking us 6-8 days to dispatch items, we feel this is too long and are working to reduce it, however PLEASE do not email/phone us 2 days after you CC is billed asking after orders, they will not have been dispatched and you will simply slow us down even more! (last week we spent over 2 hours responding to this sort of enquiry, all bar one of the orders was within the time span we give for dispatch). Thanks for your understanding on this Return to More Music
4th October 2002 Postal Backlog almost clear
All delayed mail is now packed, it is an almighty pile! we quite simply ran out of cash to post it but will rectify this when the banks open on Monday, we will then be fully up to date.
Apologies to those of you who had packages held up in the recent malaise. Return to More Music
14th september 2002 Delays to some orders
We have had a troublesome week, attempts to install a New PC failed when it suffered a hardware problem, some emails were lost, then on Friday (13th) the Church next door burnt down, it was a major fire, and we wre unable to gain access to the shop at all on Friday due to the risk of the church collapsing. Finally on Friday Night, Dean, our dance music specialist was beaten up in an unprovked attack as e returned from a club so even though we now have access to the shop we are short staffed and behind on orders. Most orders should not be delayed by more than 48 hours, but it may be a week before everythig is back on cue.. Return to More Music

Thank you for your e-mail regarding undelivered e-mails.
To protect our mail service against spam attacks, it is occasionally necessary to block mail being received from certain external mail domains. We are currently receiving an unreasonably high amount of spam and junk mail from Web tv. Because of this, we have temporarily had to stop receiving mails from these domains. We will of course continue to monitor the situation, and will lift the ban as soon as mail volumes appear to be returning to normal.
I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

29th October Postal Delays beyond our control
We have caught up on our personal postal backlog just in time for the railways to enter a crisis over safety....
With many trains cancelled for line repairs the Royal Mail described the situation as "A Nightmare" and say services will be affected.
Overseas mail will not escape as we are not close ant international mail sorting offices. Return to More Music
16th October Delays possible
We have had a sudden rush of orders, not complaining, just letting you know that we are 2-3 days behind in processing them.
Please do not phone/email unless your order is more than 3 days overdue as sorting out enquiries delays us more. Problems are always given precidence over new orders. Return to More Music

Inland, First LP/12" Up from £1.20 to £1.50
Europe, First LP/12" Up from £2.00 to £2.20
USA, First LP/12" Up from £3.75 to £4.00
Insurance Up from £2.50 to £2.60
21st Aug 2000 Postal Delays possible on orders
Today saw an unfortunate chain of events that meant we were locked out of the premesis all day. One day may not seem a lot, but it will mean that the packing falls behind.
When this happens we give priority to those orders already placed. Delays are not expected to be more than 3-5 days.
Sorry for any inconvenience. Return to More Music
14th Aug 2000 Competition Rules changed
We will no longer accept any entries recieved before the newsletter goes out...

Sorry folks, but that loophole is closed now.. Return to More Music
