    Reposting what I wrote in the IB thread:

    Holy crap! Didn't see that coming.

    Doesn't that include Lowest On Web?

    Well, it looks like Evesham is focusing on Web and Channel Sales... so I would assume LOW will continue - I'll try and find out. :)

    Crap. Didn't they know better?!? NEVER get business involved in government initiatives, it is sure to bankrupt you!

    A mate who used to work there said that Richard Austin brought in security staff who escorted everyone off the premises (both customers and staff) telling them that they'd lost their jobs as they left. no warning at all!

    Hmmm, I was going to order this TV for my Mum in the next few days or so, maybe I should hold off for a while. :worried:

    Yeah sad story to see half their workforce biting the dust, presumably all their stores. Had a few bargains from them in the late 80s, but latterly havent been impressed by their TV/Video/Audio range or prices, nor their traditional computer products which didn't seem as VFM as they once were.

    For your TV do checkout the 32" at £299 from Ebuyer.com - http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/129440/rb/0 - seems to get good reviews.

    Whatever you do - if you have ANY doubts whatsoever about a vendor, be sure to buy anything over £100 on a credit-card so you get automatic protection under S75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 - which gives you the SAME legal rights against the provider of credit as you have against the retailer of the goods (providing it's a retail not business:business transaction). I managed to save £220 that way when an external 5.25" floppy-disk drive [in the early 80s, those were the days!] failed after the vendor had failed - thanks Barclaycard!
