Hi all, been asked what specials we are doing for February, for our 25th anniversary. To be honest, my minds been on the shipment next week, and havnt really thought about it! As there's only four days left, Id better get my thinking hat on, hold on four days of Feb left, four days of Feb, four fish, I think I have a plan coming together...............Watch this space !
As most of you know , its the 25th anniversary of Gatwick Koi this year . As a thank you to all our customers , we have promised to make a little offer very mo...nth though out the year . For January we promised to reprice all koi on the website , due to us getting a much better yen rate , than when we were selecting the koi in Japan last October ! This morning i have just finished this off , so please feel free to look through the website , to see if anything you have looked at previous , is now at a better price ! I know its February already , so im thinking what we can do for you , and will come up with a special for this month .
When i went to Japan last October , as most of you know, the pound crashed down to as low as 118 yen to the pound . I knew it would come back , but diddnt have a clue how well it would bounce back , or even when it would bounce back !!! So when i was buying the koi , i had to make a decsion and set the price while i was there . When i returned from Japan , the price of the yen was bouncing all over the place , untill certin events in the USA , seemed to work in our favour , when the yen rate reached the dizzy hight of 148 . Somewhere along the line we have paid for all the koi , and with all of the events through the last couple of months , ive never really sat down to work everything out properly . Now things are starting to settle down , ive taken the time to work everything out , and the exchange rate makes a startling differance ! As this is our 25th year of Gatwick Koi , we promised to do somthing a little special every month . So as a thank you to all our customers old and new , today i will start on koi number one on our website , and work through the 500 odd koi on the website , and re price everyone of them taking into account the rate we finally paid for them and the shipping . I wont be changing the nisai A page as it wont make a big differance on these fish , but on the rest it will make a big differance ! I am doing this , as A : i know alot of people have held of buying thinking koi are expensive this winter B : Special offer on our 25th anniversary , C : its the right thing to do . So in a minute , ill be reaching for that special calculator that you all so mention when im in Japan , and ill be making a start , now its not going to be a five minute job , so you will have to be patient . But ill try and get it all down in the next few days , feel free to share this ........Gary
