    Silverprint stops opening on Saturday mornings. It sucks a bit that must be said.

    Dee's rant of the day.

    Nutz. No longer have a reason to get on the train to London on a Saturday.

    Strange to close on saturdays, that's the time when many people don't work and have time for shopping.

    Process supplies is closed on Saturdays too. It is a real shame that there is no high street shop available over the weekend when small fry customers like us are likely to visit.
    I remember once a French guy with his London guide under his arm and a map in hand looking for his way to ... Silverprint. He had taken the Eurostar and come all the way from frogs land to go to silverprint. One frog to another, I obviously had a chat with him. For sure he is not the type of customer to come knocking every Saturday at the door, but still it means something for him to have come all the way.

    Delphine,

    I know the feeling. I would be a bit miffed as well if I spent 6 hours travelling to London on the Penzance to Paddington flyer just to find what I was going up for was shut on Saturdays! But Martin has made the announcement in good time and put the word about - also their mail order service is very good and free if you spend over £100. Which these days is easy to do :cool:

    Neil.
