You're kidding right? They have been dropping like flies all over London. It's become extremely hard to make any money.
I've spoken to shop owners who are doing well and also ones who are doing really badly.
There's a lot of work out there but it's totally dependent on whether the shop has the components so they can actually carry out the work.
The shops who have squirrelled away components and have a good relationship with their suppliers are getting on by, the ones that were unable to are now shutting up.
Shops are being asked by their suppliers to put in orders for components that will arrive in 2023! Fine if you have money saved that can put put towards items you won't see for over a year but many business owners do not have this luxury.
Shops are finding it as hard as it is for us when trying to find consumables such as chains or cassettes.
