**IMPORTANT NEWS FROM ALPHAMARQUE**
The Alphamarque shop in St Albans will close for business by the end of January 2022 after first opening in January 2007.
This decision has been an extremely difficult one to take.
The reasons are a combination of the effects of Covid-19 and the series of lockdowns, ever expensive rents and business rates, a landlord who would not negotiate a rent reduction whilst lockdowns were happening, the impact of the internet and the declining number of customers. In fact, our customer numbers have reduced very significantly since the pandemic started in March 2020.
However, Alphamarque is still in business after over 30 years. Customers can still order by telephoning 01727 837 836 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our sister shop in Colchester will remain open. The Colchester shop phone number is 01206 575 066. Post Code CO2 7AH.
Alphamarque has always offered quality products at very competitive prices backed with excellent customer service. This will continue in the future.
We should like to take this opportunity to thank our customers who have supported us over the years at the St. Albans shop.
We wish you all well.
The Alphamarque Team
