It is with great sadness that Jeff and I have had to come to the decision to close The Source.
As some of you will know we were due to move to new premises early in the new year but regrettably this will not now take place and so the business will remain trading at our current address until Friday February 2nd where we will be open for returns Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm.
This decision has not been forced upon us by difficult financial circumstances but more a realisation that after 9 years of trading The Source has run its course and it is now time for us to move on to other adventures and spend time with our son, Alfie.
You'll be glad to know that Stockyard North have agreed to take on the consumables with immediate effect and you will be able to purchase from them straightaway by calling 0161 872 9206 or visiting their website here www.prophire-north.co.uk/artdeptsupplies
Its not goodbye entirely, we will be opening a stall at Red Brick Vintage in Liverpool and Jeff will be doing the rounds at various Vintage Fairs in the Northwest. In the meantime if there were any pieces that took your fancy we would be happy to discuss a sale price and we'll be sure to let you know where Retrolino will be moving to as soon as we can.
We would like to thank our lovely customers for their support over these last 9 years, some of whom have become friends. Special thanks also to the lovely people who have worked for us over the years but particularly to Lulu. We will miss you all and wish you well!
We'd also like to thank our colleagues at Propaganda, Retrolino, Art Hire Worldwide, Stockyard North, Mary Propins, Old Stuff, Red Bank Props, M&A Brown, John Morten and Medical Hire for their help, support and solidarity it has been much appreciated. We hope you will all continue to support these vital industry resources!
Many thanks EJ Grainger
