These are in uncertain times for the UK economy and local businesses, many of whom reopened last week.
Lee Longlands, in Abingdon (incorporating Vineys of Abingdon) opened today after three months of pandemic lockdown. The lack of trading over that time has led to cash flow problems and it was reported by Birmingham new sources, and the BBC, that they went into administration this week.
Lee Longlands are assuring customers that they continue trading, and the administrator sounds hopeful of bringing them out of administration fairly soon.
Lee Longlands was established in 1902 in Birmingham, and Vineys was established in the 1870s in Abingdon.
