….. I wonder what Tony Woodrup has in mind for the brand now?
I didn't know there was a link between Woodrup & BJ ?? Has Woodrup bought the BJ name?


Apparently him and two others...


When I say apparently, I mean that’s what Donald told me this morning.

Pretty sure it had nothing to do with Covid. All staff working, protected industry, full order book, just the salesman from a local BMW dealer changed his mind.. leaving three local investors (lead by Woodrup) with a name but no building.

New landlord had prepared a three year lease, but no one paid the first months rent.

Such a shame, I wonder if it was the missing guy's money or his business acumen they needed to get back on track.
Looking at the capital raised by the new company it wasn't a huge sum of money initially.

I was too busy before Christmas to get over there with my respray job which is just as well I suppose but I was very close to ordering an Olympus in 853 tubing which would have been more disappointing to get knocked back on.

Must have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for the guys working there - closing - staying open - closing again, hopefully they can now plan their retirements and maybe some will keep the torches burning.

Mark.

There was a lot going on 'behind the scenes' as we say with all this but the full story may never be revealed. I know some of it but nowhere near all and I'm afraid I'm not telling on here what I do know - which was secondhand anyway. :|
