Although the retail premises is temporarily closed to the public, popular railway modelling store A2B Model Railways in Matlock Bath, Derbyshire is doing everything possible to support modellers during these difficult times.
Customers can contact shop owner Andy, via Skype on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss possible purchases and ask for advice. A2B is also offering free postage on all orders above £10.00 in value and will provide safe and social distancing personal delivery to addresses in the Derby area.
A2B offers a range of products from Bachmann, Hornby, Oxford Rail, Graham Farish, Peco, Javis, Gaugemaster and Woodland Scenics range.
Andy also offers a layout building service with the budget priced micro layout proving a popular product. In addition, throughout the current lockdown period, A2B is also running a special prize draw.
Every customer who places an order during this period will be entered into a draw to win a £100 voucher to spend once the store reopens. The voucher will also be valid for online purchases. It is a great incentive to support a friendly, traditional model shop.
A2B remains committed to helping modellers, and the business has also started an initiative to support preserved railways too. Many of the UK’s preserved lines are feeling the pinch during their enforced closure.
Donations to heritage lines
As a volunteer on one heritage line, and a regular visitor to others, Andy has promised to donate a percentage of profits from all sales to preserved railways. When ordering, customers should state, in the order notes, the name of the railway they wish to support and Andy will pass the donation onto the relevant railway’s appeal.
All donations will be made at the end of each month. Why not check out A2B Model Railways, the friendly and supportive local shop.
