    Including this on this thread, just to make future reference for members a bit easier. Anyone come across this variation. Ruled out all previous suggestions, apart from ED2 ( JMA EVE4) which looks ok. By checking my post box reserve have come across, JMA codes, all look good. Will check against customers key tomorrow. HAF-2,HUW-1,JNG-3,BMB-2 Unless anyone has come across this before and has any other blank suggestions.

    Hegel cylinder lock

    If I recollect correctly, that would make the customer a "mard-arse."

    New product range.

    Couldn't agree more, must be a good product, but Got to get the packaging right.

    New product range.

    Thanks will look into that. I will sell a small range of the accessories with the month. But really it's another classic case of me giving way too thought and research to a range that not even come close to generating more than .5% of my weekly turnover, but every little helps.

    New product range.

    Not really a problem, I'm in a commuter station. Customers want the item immediately, and they don't mind paying a pound or two more for it either. As for Mr mobile. Just tried to reg, kept asking for my state/province even though they are UK based. Tried london/England/UK/Greater London, rejected, now just annoyed with the website.

    New product range.

    Definitely not looking at phone repairs, seems like a nightmare, and I knew cases just change too quickly to be viable. I'm just looking at getting some cables, adaptors, memory cards and power banks.

    New product range.

    A few months ago, inspired by a thread, I started keeping a book of every item a customer wanted, but I didn't stock. Some of them were just ridiculous, some were quite easy to tag on to an order( eg ferrules, unusual colours of laces). One range of items repeatedly cropped up. Mobile phone accessories. Previously I'd not been interested, my only supplier being a good cash and carry, but I don't think reliable for electronics. So I'm trying these people. https://www.core-retail.com Anyone else tried a similar range ?

    Quiet today

    At least being self employed, I don't have an area manager screaming at me, "Mike, fax me (it was a while ago) an action plan within the hour, and don't rehash a bloody old one!" Ps, he didn't say bloody. I would rehash an old one. Sometimes its quiet, some times it's busy. Hopefully it more than evens out towards busy. As a side note, I may not really do structured action plans as such any more, but I'm always looking at ways to improve my shop .
