Good afternoon everyone , tomorrow the shop will closed all day, ( Wednesday 9th January ) , and we will not even be answering messages , or taking calls , im sure you will all understand , with us working with cfas over the forge , i dont want anyone returning to the shop at any time during the process . We should be open again on Thursday .
Hi all , its with a heavy heart to inform you , that it looks like we have found KHV in imported koi from Japan . This is in two ponds in the quarantine centre called the forge , and all koi involved will be put down . Although we are very sad , it also proves what we do in the quarantine period works , and we have prevented the decease getting to the shop , or customers and other dealers . As i say , the shop and the other quarantine centre called the Annex , are un affected . This will obviously be a massive blow to us financially , but as i have said before we have stopped it in its tracks , and so for us , its business as usual . This is not me being callous , but when you heat ramp as many koi as us in the last ten years , we always knew this day was coming , hasnt made it any easier for us , but as i said , its our job , its what we do , and we have to move on . I woud like to say thanks for the overwhelming support we have , and since this happened , we have shipped in koi twice more , but not too the forge , and these are selling very well , so we hope the future is still bright for us . We are back in the shop today ( 27th Dec ) , and will open every day until Saturday , but only untill 2pm !
From the 1st September ( tomorrow ) we will be offering 25 percent off the price of all our koi ( except those still in Japan ) This will last until i leave for Japan on the 14th October . We are still bringing new koi into the shop every week , so your not just buying koi , that no one else has looked over ! To dealers , the same will apply to you , but we will also be sending out incredible offers to you through the normal format ! Just to give you an example , this female 75cm Hi Utsuri from Marusei . Tomorrow she will be available to buy at the new price £1871
Good morning all , today the koi pages of the website , will all be reset to koi 001 , ready for our trip next week , so dont worry is you see no koi for sale , there is nothing wrong with the website . We still have many koi still in the sale , so if there is anything you like , just right click and save the thumbnail , and sent it to me on here . On Monday we will be very busy , remeasuring all remaining koi , and taking new videos and pictures . We do this every year , as the koi left are should be marked as one year older , so it gives us a chance to do that , and get some better pictures. Some of the koi we have here , im surprised havnt sold , but then again , looking at some of the pictures , i shouldnt be ! But Mondays pictures , should sort that out , more to follow about that ! Next Friday i leave for Japan , and you can follow my trip , and get an early view of what we buy at https://gatwickkoi.com/japan-blog , or go to the site and click Japan blog , and then click Autumn 2018 .
