The volunteers in the merchandising team are going to take a well-earned rest (well apart from the annual stock audit) so the ART shops, including the SmART Ringer shop, will be closed from Sunday 9 December 2018 to Thursday 3 January 2019.
This has been another busy year for the merchandising team, reprints were needed on “A Ringers Guides to Learning the Ropes” and “50 Ringing Things” neither of which show much slowing in demand. The supply of Personal Progress Logbooks meant to last a year ran out in 9 months. The year in numbers:
There have been no new products launched this year although “Teaching with Simulators” was considerably revised and updated. Sales for 2018 matched those of 2017 which was itself a record year.
A very big thank you to our volunteers – Gill Hughes,
Anne Sladen and Tony Goodman – for working so hard to get all those
orders processed and sent out. Thank you!
Gill Hughes, Merchandising Manager
