CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
As of 1st October 2014 ownership at Timbecon has changed. The new Perth store is now open - U2/17 Canvale Road, Canning Vale.
The business was bought with a limited amount of stock, and while we have received numerous orders from local suppliers we are still waiting on many more orders to arrive. The range will continue to grow with local suppliers shipping right up until Christmas and into the new year to get us started.
Some stock from overseas suppliers such as our clock range, wooden parts, scroll saw blades and many others has been airfreighted in. All larger/heavier stocklines such as the Sherwood machinery range is in production now and will start being shipped to begin arriving in late February and into March.
Along with Ross, his son Hague will be opening a retail outlet in Melbourne in the first half of 2015. Hague started the business Bench Standard (www.benchstandard.com) late last year and will be merging this business with Timbecon as soon as it is practical, with the full Bench Standard range being available in Perth now.
In the meantime Bench Standard will continue trading as per normal and when the businesses have completed full integration we will look at ceasing operations on both current websites with the new Timbecon website launching in March.
For all customers with outstanding gift or frequent shopper vouchers, these will be honoured as per original terms. The new ownership team will also honour all warranty, including Sherwood’s Three-Year Warranty, upon production of the original receipt.
It will take us some time to restore the full range in Perth as well as make it available via our retail outlet in Melbourne. However, we hope to be operating close to full strength by May/June 2015. In the meantime, as we are able to provide more information on store openings and new product arrivals, we will post it to our website.
We are looking forward to serving you again soon.
Ross, Hague and the new Timbecon Team
