Fortunately there are lots of alternative sources for film of all brands.
    7day shop are no longer located in the Channel Islands, they, along with many others from both Jersey and Guernsey moved when the U.K. Goverment changed the rules and now evrything sent to the U.K. from the Channel Islands must now pay the VAT. I believe that 7dayshop re located to Luxenborg to avoid the payment, as did most firms, they may still have an ofice in Guernsey, but nothing is exported from there now, as regards Ilford, it is old news, it first came up last year, they claim that Ilford film is too expensive, and Harman will not do any sort of deal with them, I have never and would never deal with them, prefering to deal with Silverprint in London as not only were they cheaper than 7dayshop but anything I ordered is delivered quicker, a friend used to deal with them and it took 7 days to arrive, bearing in mind at that time Guernsey is only next door, a sister island, and from Silverprint it takes a max of 2 days.

    I know the APUG policy is never to delete threads but isn't this one the classic case of needing to do so as the situation has completely changed and whatever we think of 7Dayshop the thread's title is so misleading in terms of fact as to be worse than useless in terms of who stocks Ilford films.

    I agree and my comment which has been quoted, was made over two and a half years ago in the light of the situation then. Obviously a lot has changed since then!
