Kimbolton Fireworks discussion thread

  1. Does anyone know if Kimbolton are in some sort of difficulty? We buy some of our cat4 from them and last week they cancelled their demo night with only a couple of days notice and now they have shut down their online ordering for both cat 3 and 4 it says closed for maintenance which I find very strange as they are (or supposed to be) running their offer until the 28th of February. I've messaged them on Thursday to see if the site will be back but got no reply yet. All seems a bit odd to me.

    They've withdrawn from the Southport competition, too.

  4. Looks like they’re changing their online shop.
     
  5. Did they cancel both demo nights?
     
  6. Not sure if the one in stoke went ahead or not. Very strange to update the website shop mid offer though. Surely they would have done it after the offer had finished. I hope very much that they are not in trouble and it is just a coincidence.

    I think they’re OK - had a trade brochure through recently and I don’t think they were actually taking part in Southport this year fullstop.
     
  8. Yes I had the trade brochure through too just all seems very strange. I messaged Chris but he hasn't replied, normally he gets back to me straight away.

    Just heard they have a voicemail message if you call them saying they are no longer trading? Does that just mean trade sales I wonder?
     
  11. I can confirm. They have ceased trading!

    Totally, as in display business, manufacturing and trade and retail sales?
     
  13. Another one gone?
     
  14. Yes. It is no more I'm afraid.

    I'm guessing something might rise, phoenix like, in its place.
     
  16. I don't think so.
