Closure of Highland Horn Company
After 30 years of continuous trading, The Highland Horn Company will close for good over the coming 6 - 12 months or thereby. This is soley for retiral and no other reason.
We recognise that we trade in a number of "niche" sectors and, ahead of closing, have had interest from, and taken steps together with, some of our Trade customers and Suppliers to preserve the ongoing supply of certain materials into these specialist fields. Nonetheless, such future supply arrangements are not in place for 100% of items stocked, so it may be the case that people wish to "stock up". We shall cater to that on an ongoing retail and wholesale basis with the provision of modest (retail ) and substantial (wholesale bulk) savings being applied ahead of and whilst negotiating prices for both sectors. We fully expect that our retail selling will cease sometime between November and December 2019. This is dependant on ongoing issues relating to "winding up" and we are unable to provide an exact date.......however....as this becomes known - we will update this site as best accurate and able. At that time there will be NO EXCEPTIONS - the cessation of RETAIL trade at that time will be final. Wholesale trading will continue after those dates until stock is exhausted. At present we have stopped "buying in" (stock), so are working from what (substantial) stock there is to hand.
We have been consistently profitable throughout our time trading and have no doubt that the acquisition and distribution of key materials may continue along similar lines in the future in the right hands. If you, in reading this, have a serious commercial interest in exploring that potential further , be it as a whole, or on a sector specific basis, then please contact us. Accounts and other relevant information will be made available to serious parties only, where we are wholly satisfied with the enquirer's integrity.
We are grateful beyond words for the loyal and regular trade and friendship we have enjoyed from customers and suppliers alike over our time running "Highland Horn" - Thank You.
The (mail) ordering process will alter in the next few weeks with immediate effect - our volume of business just now means this will be slower and orders will take 7 - 10 days to process and despatch to you .
THERE WILL BE REGULAR PERIODS OF CLOSURE LASTING 1 - 3 WEEKS TO ENABLE CONSOLIDATION OF AND WORKING WITH STOCK, TYPICALLY FOLLOWED BY SALES OF MATERIAL ON RE OPENING.
This, in the main, is due to us catering to trade customers in mainland "EU" stocking up in bulk ahead of BREXIT, giving us a great deal extra work to do as the clock ticks down. Please bear with us.
