/ Needle Sports - CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Please Register as a New User in order to reply to this topic.

To protect our staff during the Covid19 pandemic we have taken the decision to close down ALL operations from today. This includes websales - there is no way to fully protect our staff from the Covid19 virus while they are at work - whether answering emails, using the phones or packing up orders to be sent out. 

Websales are a huge part of Needle Sports' business so this has been a tough decision to make but we must put the health of our staff and customers first.

We are looking forward to reopening as soon as restrictions on people movement are lifted and we are sure it is safe to do so.

Thank you.

Needle Sports team.

Brave move for a small business but responsible.  Well done and hope this doesn't last too long.

You've done the right thing - I really hope things work out for you in return: We'll need Needle Sports when this is all done!

I just hope that when you do re-open in the future that people really appreciate the knowledgeable personal service you provide. We can do this by buying from independents like yourselves where it is always a pleasure to know that staff actually know what they were talking about.

Always admired Needlesports ethos so all the best for the future.

Thanks Stephen.

I have a Macpac tent special ordered through Needlesports, as I know what a good shop you are.

Your staff have been extremely helpful right from the start and I'm glad you're looking out for them like this; I'll look forward to getting my tent after things regain some semblance of normality!

I'm no longer resident in the UK, but have fond memories of shopping in Needlesports back in the day. You are clearly still one of the best small specialist retailers in the business, and I recommend you to people whenever I see a chance to do so. Wishing you and your staff all the best in this difficult time.

I'll call in and re-stock on equipment once this is over and I get back into climbing. Needlesports is easily one of the best outdoor shops and the only place I know that sells Dachstein gloves!

Needle Sports is 'a proper outdoor and climbing shop'. A great decision to take, looking forward to you opening again so I can buy more gear.
