Geek Toy Store May Not Close Yet!
So, after advertising that we were closing down and starting the sale, we have been busy trying to clear the stock we have out so we can get everything finished and closed.
Geek Toy Store is run from a storage unit and as it turns out there are 3 other businesses selling the same merchandise running from the same storage unit. All three of these stores are run by sole traders or families working together.
We're currently in talks with all three to purchase the remainder of our stock once the store closes. However, there is also one of these families who are interested in moving from markets and starting an online store. They're currently looking into options for taking over the Geek Toy Store from me.
At this stage it is early days, but things are looking good. If they decide to take over they will run the store and I will have little to do with it.
Obviously in the beginning I will still be around while we make the change. But after that, I will be no longer involved in the business and the new owners will run things.
Due to my health issues I cannot continue to run this store and work my job as well. The business is no longer in a position where it can sustain itself right now, so the new owners would have to start again with it.
They may decide to close it down, but they could also decide to keep it going. Once we know exactly what is happening, we will update our customers.
