    ABDF Reptile Supplies Closing Down

    Closing Down !!!

    Well its a sad day to announce the closing of ABDF Reptile supplies.

    We have now been trading since 2012 and could not have made it this far without all your support.
    I would like to thank all our customers and friends we have made over this time.
    It has been an amazing journey though all good things must come to an end !

    The store will still operate until the end of financial year 30/6/18

    Thank you ABDF

    Thanks guys

    I hate to let anyone down though things have become a little tough.
    ABDF just isn't getting the sales it use too. Now theres many other stores and Amazon to compete with.
    I crunched some numbers and have been going backwards for some time and paying the consequence now.
    I have also stuffed the old knee up at work and will be off work for 4 months waiting for operation.
    So just need to remove some of our overheads atm until I can get back to work.

    Hope everyone else is doing better

    Oh yes, Forum is here to stay for now unless someone a little more passionate shows some interest.

    Sorry to hear about the knee and dealing with the all-consuming Amazon at the same time. Sometimes shit just seems to come from all directions at the same time. I'll definitely get an order off to help clear out your inventory, though right now things are pretty quiet in the lizard enclosures.

    Hope things pick up for you in the 2nd half of the year.

    I have only just started picking up full time work. The rain this year made things very tough. I think this pay will be my 3rd full weeks pay this year. Sorry to hear about the dickey knee and hope all goes well.

    I also meant to make a big order to help clear out the backlog but there was very little I could use and the things I needed weren't there.If I knew things were so dire I would have ordered earlier. Such is life.
