I am aware that we have been very quiet on the issue of the online shop for some time so here’s a small update.
We are currently in the midst of developing and refining the site and, I believe, we are beginning to glimpse the light at the end of the tunnel.
Photos have been taken, descriptions written, arguments had, packaging abused, fixes made. There is still plenty to do and hurdles to… well… hurdle, but the message is that the much requested online shop is well and truly on its way and (hopefully) launching around November!
Initially the shop will be launching with a very select list of product – mainly rarer and more specialist items and will slowly grow as we increase the number of items available to order.
The main reason for this is so that we can iron out any kinks in our process and technology without the running the risk of failing to deliver (no pun intended).
So although it may currently seem that the J.Wadsworth Online Shopping Experience is a thing of Myth I’m here to assure that it will soon be a thing of Legend!
