2020, what are you doing to us?!?!
It's been a strange time. We've all had to adapt - whether we like it or not.
Small businesses like ourselves have taken a bit of a beating, but we are not giving up.
What should have been "The Year Of Red Star 13" has turned into a very stressful time.
Starting in April 2019 and looking forward to celebrating our 1st year anniversary in April of this year would have a been a huge milestone. However we were forced to "isolate" for 3 months and once we were allowed to reopen we had to start over. once again.
As a small local business we THANK YOU all for you continued support and although we have a long way to go, we are pleased to say that we are finally back on track (although there is talk of another lockdown - sorry, but we will not surrender!!!).
To maintain our service we have changed the way in which we shop and now follow the COVID-19 guidelines for your safety and ours. We have also improved our online shop and offer delivery where needed. Plus we also offer a "Click & Collect" option on orders to be picked up from the shop.
We are moving forward, slower than we want to, but we are moving forward and are now planning how we do business for the Christmas & New Year period. We can accept any request for items that we don't currently stock, just get in touch and we will source for you (with *hard to beat prices*). In addition to supplying gift cards (details coming soon) & setting up a Christmas Club & storage of presents until you are ready to pick up.
Our stock has also increased in the ranges we now do. We stock Anime / Manga, Role Playing Games, Jewellery, Well-Being, Wiccan, Gothic items plus much more. Check out the website and / or contact us for further details.
Finally we support many charities and events, with SHADOWS DEPRESSION SUPPORT GROUP being our main charity. If you wish to donate money we do have a Dalek collection box on our counter (which is also used for monies collected from the sale of carrier bags) so if you have any spare change, please pop it in.
We have also released a 10 track acoustic / mellow CD featuring 10 different artists with new, unreleased and / or re-vamped tracks. We have copies in the shop for only £10 each plus we can ship them out, even outside of the UK. Details at www.facebook.com/groups/totallybogus and www.crowdfunder.co.uk/totallyboguspresents
Please support this organisation. They provide support to the communities within South Wales who suffer with their Mental Health, with an oncall service that takes calls from all over the World. COVID-19 has played a major part in people's Mental Health, with self-isolation, further money worries plus much more. The volunteers at SHADOWS work above & beyond whilst juggling their own work, families, etc. They are also self funding and during 2020, funds have been overused and very little coming in due to fund raising events being put on hold.
Purchasing the CD will help SHADOWS to continue their good work and provide services / counselling to those who need it in these uncertain times. If you don't want the CD and can donate any amount that you can afford then go to the crowdfunder page or pop into the shop and make a donation.
Stay Safe and don't forget us and we won't forget you!
