Shop News

22 June 2017

The  NGS shop re-opened on Saturday 17th June and your orders are coming in and being processed. A couple of members have expressed frustration with the usability of the online shop system and so I have written a Beginners Guide to using the NGS Online Shop. This is available to download by clicking here link to Beginners Guide Document. Thanks to Keith Singleton (member 18426) for testing this document for me. Any other feedback is welcome.

Sales are going well of the new 50th Anniversary Peco wagon range (£8 for the opens, £10 for the tanks), with many members opting for one of each of the five varieties. The new military vehicle kits (at £7.50 each) are also being bought in in wagon-loads of 4-6, which will soon deplete the stock of 50 of each if this continues.

The price reduction of the ready to plant Corn Exchange building (now only £9) with free business sign labels has also raised an encouraging response.

There has been a steady demand for the ready to run stock with some varieties of Habfis Ferry Wagon; Stove ‘R’s; Snowploughs; Inspection Saloon and Thompson Full Brake down to penny numbers – when they’re gone, they’re gone!

Pre-orders for the new Carflats, expected at the end of the year, have exceeded 1,000 so far but there is still just time to pre-order and get your £2 discount per model off the final purchase price.

I have had a number of queries about the lack of Society kits on the online shop. As mentioned in the Chairman’s Report in the 13/17 newsletter (page 4),  the restocking of kits has been quite problematic and somewhat hampered by the lack of volunteers to assist with this. We are working with Tim, the Kit Production Manager, to get as many kits back into production and on sale as soon as possible. As kits become available they may appear on the Stand first, so if you are visiting a show with the NGS stand, it may be worthwhile talking to Tim (who is also the Stand Manager) to find what he has available.

As notified previously, please note the new address for mail orders and queries:

NGS Shop Manager, 5 Sarazen Green, Livingston, EH54 8SZ.

Email access is unchanged at shop@ngaugesociety.com

Any orders sent to the previous (Skegness) shop address will be forwarded on for now, but this will add delay to your order.

Please note that the shop is run by volunteers in spare time, who may be away from time to time, and so you are asked to allow 21days for delivery before chasing up an outstanding order.

REOPENING OF THE NEW NGS SHOP.

The  NGS shop is due to re-open on Saturday 17th June in a new form and a new location. The shop now sells only society products which, although this is just over one hundred lines, and will make the shop more manageable and provide a better service to the membership. The NGS shop stock was physically moved to Scotland in an epic journey by Gill (the former shop manager), her husband Alan and their trusty old van. Happily, Gill and Alan survived the ordeal, but sadly the van did not. Many thanks are due to Gill for keeping the NGS shop going during the difficult period of the transition.

The change of location makes no difference to your access to the NGS shop via the web-shop, but if you order by post please make sure you use the new NGS shop address, which is:

NGS Shop Manager, 5 Sarazen Green, Livingston, EH54 8SZ.

STOCK NEWS.

Amongst the over 6,700 items transferred to Livingston were the new five lines of the superb Peco 50th anniversary wagons. These are on sale at £8 for the opens and £10 for the tanks. A new line and new venture is the release of kits to produce n gauge military vehicles to grace your Warflats, Warwells and the upcoming new modern era Warflat being developed by the society. The Saxon APC and Scimitar light tank are due to be released soon with the Humber Pig armoured car and BV206 amphibious vehicle to follow. These are NGS exclusive models.

Pre-orders for the new Carflats, expected at the end of the year, have exceeded 1,000 so far but there is still just time to pre-order and get your £2 discount per model off the final purchase price. I am expecting the range and number of NGS kits to grow steadily now as the Kit Production team start to make progress against the number of difficulties they have overcome. Kit builders should note that the ex-Parkwood kits are being incorporated under the NGS brand and so will appear with new product code numbers.

OUT OF STOCK AND BACK ORDERS.

To repeat Gill’s request from the 3/17 newsletter, all previous orders for items that were/are out of stock have been cancelled, and so outstanding orders should be re-submitted to the new shop if still required. You are advised not to raise orders for out of stock products as in some cases these lines may be discontinued.

Thanks Adrian
