Stef’s retirement

Dear Customer, supplier, friends, acquaintances and enemies!

It’s with a heavy heart that we have to announce the end of an era…..

Our much loved shop manager, Stef, who has been with us for 17 years is retiring!

He’s finally hanging up his apron, handing back the keys and heading north to the land of Alan Partridge and six fingers.

He’s been a fantastic servant to the company, a great bloke to be around and his knowledge has bailed every one of us out at some time or another.

He’ll be sadly missed, the place won’t be quite the same without him but we’ll do our best to help you get through the 30 or so seconds of sadness you’ll have felt while reading this!

Stef joined us from RTF Wholesale of Temple Fortune where he’d been honing his skills as shop manager extraordinaire for the previous 2 decades. When he came in 1999 he immediately cast a long shadow over Buckhurst Hill which has lasted so long that we can hardly remember the good old days before him!

All joking aside, I hope you’ll join us in wishing him a long, happy and healthy retirement.

We’re sure he’ll be glad to see you one last time before he leaves so please do pop in and take this last opportunity to abuse him about Norwich before Friday 16th September.

All the best.
