Happy New Year (& VAT)

Happy New Year to all our customers and friends. We know that many of you have spent a lot of money with us in 2010, a good many people on several occasions; everybody who spent more than £2,000 with us in 2010 has been sent a special loyalty card. We’ll be bringing the full range of Draper camping equipment online in the next month. We’ve spent part of our New Year’s Day changing all the inc-VAT prices on the store to reflect the VAT increase; but our VAT-registered business customers will pay the same in 2011 as they did in 2010. Many manufacturers will increase their recommended retail prices in January, so buy now rather than wait. Continue reading
