Astronomy sales during the pandemic!
Demand for astronomy equipment remains high while manufacturers continue to struggle with disrupted shipping channels and materials and component shortages. A perfect storm!
Keeping our website stock availability indicators up-to-date and our customers informed during these extraordinary times is difficult. Often a manufacturer or distributor is unable to provide an ETA. The situation can also change overnight if a shipment is cancelled, delayed or contains less stock than anticipated.
In an attempt to stay on top of the situation we are working overtime and have employed more people in our warehouse, helpdesk and workshop.
We predict these extraordinary circumstances will continue into 2022 so please be patient and know we are doing our best to make stock available.
On a positive note. Interest in astronomy is at an all-time high and FLO has never been in such good health with more staff, premises and stock than any other UK astronomy retailer.
Thank-you sincerely for your patience and understanding during these extraordinary times.
